What's On at The Bailiffgate Museum
Harry Potter School/Organisational Visits
A very special exhibition entitled "Illustrating Harry Potter" comes to Bailiffgate Museum, Alnwick in March 2017. Lasting until 18th June it showcases wonderful original illustrations, sketches, models and final prints from the new, fully illustrated edition of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, illustrated by Jim Kay. There will also be a range of activities and games linked to the exhibition.
We are happy to accomodate group visits during our normal opening hours, but in addition to normal opening times, the museum is able to offer suitable organisations special visits. These will take place when the museum is closed to the general public and we will endeavour to match the activities taking place to the ages and interests of group members, after discussions with the group representative (see below).
These visits are available to:

Groups of home educators
Further and Higher educational institutions
Clubs e.g. WI, Art groups, U3A, etc.
