College of Wizardry Classic – End of Year Event – 28 November-1 December, 2019
The End of Year Event is a Classic run, with additional content suitable for beginners and opt-in gameplay and hidden mysteries. The four day event includes overnight stays at the castle, three cooked meals a day, and robe and tie on loan. The entire castle is reserved and off limits to the public. Join magic classes as a student or teacher. Enter secret clubs and get sorted into a house. Explore secret passageways and roam the castle grounds, full of special effects, ghosts and living magical beings! Compete in fireball, dance in the grand hall and watch the late night fireworks show.
The Headmaster for this run is portrayed by Will Osmond, a British larp organiser, who is currently writing his PhD thesis on larp. His vision for the event is one of magical fantasy, where even the rarest of creatures and sorcery may be encountered for those who seek it. He intends for the Headmaster to be caring, hands-on and approachable, but one who might still call in troublemakers for “chats”. He and the crew are exploring school-wide plots, new ideas for assistant professors, and extracurricular classes. Lead Producer Robin Steen is piloting Magic & Mischief experiences as an opt-in story track during the event.
Toshi Salvino makes a guest appearance as an enchanted doll especially written by Freja Gyldenstrøm, and holds a makeup workshop (Toshi is a professional makeup artist with notable work at Sleep No More in NYC).
