Polls have opened today to decide next the two locations of the breathtaking wands display from the Harry Potter universe. 

Could Glasgow be next?

The initial ‘Wands Ready’ voting process will give the UK and Ireland the chance to narrow the selection down to eight finalists, which will be announced on 18th March.

The winning locations will host the installation in the lead up to the release of the third Fantastic Beasts film. 

The nine magnificent Wizarding World wands that illuminated the City of London last autumn in support of ‘Lumos’ will spread the magic around the UK and Ireland, as Warner Bros. UK today announced that they will go on tour.
 
Standing fifteen feet tall and set within concrete bases, the nine wands – bringing to life those belonging to some of the most beloved characters in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films – illuminate each night, performing a light show to music from the Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter films They were created in support of ‘Lumos’, whose mission is to end the institutionalisation of children around the world.

Josh Berger, President and Managing Director of Warner Bros. Entertainment UK, Eire & Spain, and President, Harry Potter Global Franchise Development said

“We were overwhelmed by the response to the Wizarding World Wands supporting Lumos installation in London last year and want to bring the magic to fans across the country.  We are excited to find out where they’ll be unveiled next.”
