Harry Potter-themed birthday parties
The Store of Requirement loves hosting birthdays for all ages and offers the exclusive use of their private, themed “Classroom” for parties. They solemnly swear your child and their wizarding friends will have a “riddikulusly” fun time!
With party packages to suit all budgets, you can choose to hire the classroom space only and bring your own party food, games and cake. Alternatively you may wish to include party bags, buttery brew, cupcakes, print@home invitations, or even a private host and activities in your package. Mischief managed!

A magical race against time, The Store of Requirement’s Wizards Adventures will have you exploring the nooks of Samford Village. A magical device containing everything you need to win the day and overcome any obstacles you might encounter will help lead you to clues and maps where you must solve puzzles before you can continue on your way.
Wizards Adventure – OWL TASKER
Suitable for ages 12+. For single players or for teams up to 6.
Something went terribly wrong while travelling and you now find yourself in Samford Village with no money and no way to return home! If you’re clever enough you might just be able to earn enough coins to purchase the use of a teleportation device that is leaving in exactly one hour. Use the Owl Tasker App and get paid for magical jobs posted by wizards and witches all over town. A little bit of strategy, teamwork and smarts will go a long way in this adventure which is like no other!
Wizards Adventure – SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Before the train departs in one hour, you need to purchase everything on your school list. To do this, you must visit each location as chosen by the schools headmistress, Professor Dorothea Lynch. You will be provided with a map of the village, a school list containing six items, and a magical device that will help you. Please ensure you purchase EVERYTHING on your list, to miss an item may result in expulsion!
Reviews of the Harry Potter Store
“It’s amazing. The thought, love and effort that’s gone into how the store looks is amazing in itself. It had potter related items I hadn’t seen before. My son wants to have his birthday party there! He truly loved every inch. Worth the drive.” – Seran Paton (5 Stars)

“Thank you for creating such a magical place for these super fans! Benji will never forget this birthday!” – Sarah Elizabeth Turner
“I phoned about a wand my grandson wanted for his birthday. I had tried to buy it everywhere and was desperate! The Store of Requirement called me and told me how to order it and sent it express so he got it for his birthday, I was more than impressed, they are fantastic and caring. Well done!” – Janette Kerr (5 Stars)
“Just went in and had the most magical experience! The food is amazing and the staff were too beautiful for words. Great stock, loads of which I haven’t seen before. Do yourself a favour and just go. It’s so glorious.”
