The Leaky Cauldron started running fan events in 2009, becoming an international spectacle with panels, guests and special features for dedicated Potter fans. Their most recent event was in Dublin, Ireland.

Leaky Con promises to bring celebrities. In the past, they’ve delivered popular names from the franchise including Evanna Lynch, who appeared throughout the franchise as Luna Lovegood, and Dan Fogler, the actor behind Jacob in the recent Potterverse film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. 

While tickets are currently sold out, sites like Craigslist and Stubhub are bound to have a few for sale for the vigilant as the event nears.
