EIGHT towns and cities across Ireland and the UK will be transformed when a collection of giant wands from the wizarding world go on tour in aid of JK Rowling’s charity.
Harry Potter fans will vote on where the five-metre wands stop off, with the most popular locations announced on March 18.
The installation was originally displayed in London last year.
Now the nine statues – including Lord Voldemort’s yew wand – will travel to eight chosen towns or cities.
Each night, the wands will perform a light show to music from the Fantastic Beasts and the Harry Potter films.
Rowling’s Lumos charity, named after the light-giving spell in her Harry Potter books, was launched by the author to end the institutionalisation of children around the world.
The installation comes ahead of the Blu-ray and DVD release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald on March 18.
Josh Berger, president and managing director of Warner Bros Entertainment UK, Eire and Spain, and president of Harry Potter global franchise development, said: “We are excited to find out where they’ll be unveiled next.”
