We have officially started to list our upcoming guests - starting with the Harry Potter ones in time for the Children's parade this coming week. You can find more details about our guests on this website shortly or view the facebook announcements online now.
Two of the largest family friendly events on the Worthing calendar for 2018, The Worthing Children's parade and Worthing Wormhole are collaborating to celebrate 20 years of Harry Potter.
Last year marked the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book 'The Philosophers stone' which, along with the rest of the Harry Potter series, sparked an international resurgence in reading across all ages.
Both The Worthing Children's parade and Worthing Wormhole are passionate about encouraging young people to engage with reading and believe that the written word holds every bit as much magic as Harry Potter's Phoenix feather wand.
Worthing's vibrant Children's parade now in its 11th year, supported by Guild Care, takes place on the 16th June 2018 and is set to be the biggest and most visually exciting on record.
23 local schools are participating in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts themed festivities. The school's enthusiasm and dedication to their sculptures and costume making has been awe inspiring.
The parade will be arriving at Steyne gardens at approximately 11:45am where the party is set to continue with a host of free family entertainment.
There will be an incantation of Harry Potter wizard actors visiting the event including:
- Michael Henbury: Gringotts Goblin - Harry Potter and the deathly Hallows: Part 2
- Sally Mortemore: Madam Irma Prince - Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets & Harry Potter: Hogwarts mystery (phone game)
- Sabine Crossen: Mrs Lestrange - Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald
- Jon Campling: Death eater - Harry Potter and the deathly hallows: Part 1 & 2
