The event will start on Thursday, July 21 with a game of Wizard Chess from 2 to 4 p.m. featuring staff and participants from two teams, with each person acting as a piece in the chess game. Each team will need to decided together which piece to move. 

On Friday, July 22, there will be a game of Library Quidditch from 3 to 5 p.m. Quidditch is the fictional sport in the Harry Potter universe and it has been adapted into a real world "muggle" version.
