People are magic!

Witchards Society is lifting a legacy of nearly a decade of magically fantastic immersive events and larps set in our very own Witchards Universe.
Study spells, magic potions and mystical artefacts. Encounter magic beings and do excursions into the fairytale forest.
Each event hosts over a hundred students. As well as professors, castle staff and lots of magical beings and magical encounters. This is a place to have pretend enemies for a weekend, and meet lifelong friends!

Our Events

Witchards Society hosts an array of events, and we enable our community to tell their own stories, too.

Bothwell School of Witchcraft is the UK’s largest magic school role-playing event. Located in an authentic British boarding school, you’ll easily be able to become a part of the school of magic you always dreamed of attending! Take part in magical lessons as a student or professor, explore the expansive grounds, be sorted into one for the four school houses, and make lifelong friendships.

College of Wizardry is the largest immersive magic school in the world. Study magic and make life-long friendships, at all inclusive overnight stay at a real castle. Go to class, explore secret passageways, adventure onto the castle grounds and face mystical beings. Find out more about the student Houses and Clubs, the Faculty and the lore of Czocha College of Wizardry.

Our newest event for our German-speaking community members.

Eine Schule, die auf seltsame Art und Weise auftaucht, die umliegenden mitteldeutschen Konfluxe in politisches Chaos versinken lässt und verlorene Dinge die auf mysteriöse weise in der Schule auftauchen – all das und mehr erwartet euch am “Thalenberg – Institut des Verlorenen”!

Werewar will return in 2025.

Ever since the First Witchard, that fabled original spellcaster unleashing the power of the first magic, there has been a tension in nature. Something that shifted. Undetectable by normal senses, but nevertheless there – a tremor deep in the souls of all with the gift of magic.
