Sure, fans can celebrate their love of Harry Potter on any given night of the year, but Thursday, 1 February calls for something special.
It's the night Bloomsbury are holding their annual Harry Potter Book Night, launching a host of literary events across the world, all centered on this year's theme: Fantastic Beasts.
Each event will be held using a special kit sent out by the publisher, filled with magical activities and ideas connected to the likes of basilisks, boggarts, and centaurs.
Unfortunately, registration for the kits has now closed; Bloomsbury, however, has provided a useful map of all the events globally taking place, from the UK to Malaysia. Events are being held in a vast variety of venues: from bookshops, libraries, to universities.
The site also features an archive of past activities from previous years; packed with games, activities, and facts about the book series.
Alongside Harry Potter Book Night, Bloomsbury is also holding a national schools competition; asking students to invent their own menagerie of creatures, with the chance to win copies of The Hogwarts Library box set.
Harry Potter Book Night takes place 1 February.
