Edinburgh’s wizarding pop-up launches magical afternoon tea perfect for kids

Edinburgh’s wizarding speakeasy, The Cauldron, has introduced an afternoon tea experience that's perfect for children this festive season.

Monday, 16th December 2019, 5:28 pm
The afternoon tea experience is sure to delight children this Christmas.

Designed for children aged 8 and upwards, the organisers say the fun event offers the perfect opportunity for “young wizards to don their robes and wield their wands” to “conjure a non-perilous potion using a little bit of magic” from The Cauldron’s wall of Magical Creatures.

Each person will then be treated to hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and allowed to enjoy a selection of sandwiches, cakes, scones and sweets.

The experience, which lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes, will take place at 12.30 on Friday 20 December, and 12.00 on Saturday 21 December.

Hidden in plain sight beneath Edinburgh’s Frederick Street, the wizarding pop-up – which travelled to Edinburgh via New York and London – recently announed its festive line-up which includes Christmas cocktails, mixology classes and drag queen Ellie Diamond appearing in a special grotto as Mrs Clause.

Matthew Cortland, co-founder of The Cauldron, said: “Christmas is about letting children experience magic and excitement. Young magicians can get into the festive spirit at The Cauldron when they dress in wizard robes and wield a working magic wand.

“This is where the magic happens this festive season, and little wizards will be totally blown away when stepping into our festive potion-making dungeon. With a guest appearance from our special owl, it’s sure to be a hoot!”
