It’s almost time to board the Hogwarts Express!

In a couple of days we’ll be changing to the ‘Hogwarts Express’ setting while we go back to school, and Hogwarts will officially be open for school again on Sept 1st.

Those of you with alumni characters, please remember that once school starts back, you need a current student character to be on the dash regularly. We can’t wait to read your apps! :)

Advertising Blackboard
Advertising Blackboards are found throughout Britain, as they are cheap and easy to use. With a simple scractata spell, a Witch or Wizard can make the blackboard advertise anything they like. More experienced charmers can set up a series of advertisements to present themselves.
They also come in a variety of sizes, the largest blackboard being part of the Quidditch Trillenium Stadium built for the finals of the 1994 Quidditch World Cup. Prior to the game, this board was used to display a variety of advertisements, however once the final began, the board was converted into a scoreboard.
