The Vale Wand-erer Treasure Hunt
Every Wizard needs a wand!
Potter was chosen by his wand at Olivander's shop in Diagon Alley during the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. His wand was unique, made of holly wood with a phoenix feather at its core. Potter took his wand everywhere whilst at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
And so have we!
We have taken a replica of Harry’s Wand to 10 amazing coast and country places around the Vale of Glamorgan, and taken a photo of it in each location.
All you need to do is go for a wand-er by car, bike or bus it to find out where we went!
Find, and visit, all 10 locations (between 18-26 Feb 2023) to complete our online quiz for your chance to win the replica wand used in the photos.
Plus you can also win a 2 day trip to London including a Family Studio Tour at Harry Potter World and overnight hotel stay including breakfast for a family of four
