A murder mystery event based on the wizard school settings of Harry Potter is set to take place in Dundonald Castle.

Organised by Gaiety Theatre, and presented by interactive murder mystery organisers Can You Catch the Killer?, Gaiety on Tour: Murder at Wizard School will take place in Dundonald Castle this month.

The event should excite Harry Potter fans, who can use their knowledge and expertise of the film and book series to help solve the mystery.

A Gaiety statement said: "Aspiring wizards from each of the four houses are here learning to defend themselves in the face of renewed rumours being whispered amongst the students and faculty.

"Could this herald the return of You-Know-Who?

"Something is amiss at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and when someone turns up dead at a school for magic it takes a lot more than a normal detective to solve it.

"It takes someone who really know a Gryphon from a Hippogriff!

"A Murder Mystery Harry Potter parody – great for fans of Harry Potter! A basic knowledge of Harry Potter is essential to properly understand and enjoy this show.

"You don’t need to be an expert, but you need to know a wee bit at least! This is an unofficial comedy parody and not affiliated with the books or films."

The show lasts for 120 minutes and tickets are priced at £6 to £9.

It will take place inside Dundonald Castle on October 14 at 4.30pm.
