British budget department store Primark is about to make all your dreams come true with a range of Harry Potter Christmas baubles and decorations. The Christmas trees at Hogwarts are a sight to behold and most of us have a fairly strong visual image of Hagrid putting them all into place. Sadly Primark isn’t promising real live fairies, or Hagrid to deliver the tree, but you could still have a magical Christmas and without breaking the bank too!
The new products will be available to buy at Primark stores up and down the UK from the end of September as the store starts to fill up with Christmas lines and with the very magical decorations starting at just £4, you can have a Harry Potter Christmas for a cut price!
Take a look!
The bargain range includes Harry Potter Platform 9 ¾, and Hogwarts baubles at £5 each, packs of House baubles at £4 each, these launch at the end of September. The potion lights will be £8 but won’t be available until October! If you can’t wait, then Primark has launched a range of Harry Potter merch this week, including the bunting above priced at just £3, and a stack of stationery and homeware with prices starting from £2.
You’ll need to be quick, because at those prices this lot is going to look like someone cast Evanesco on it pretty quickly as it flies off the shelves.

Wuthering Heights is based on the classic novel of the same, although Bush was actually inspired to write the song after watching a 1967 BBC mini-series adaptation of Emily Brontë. She was instantly hooked and straight away read the book, discovering that she shared her birthday (30th of July) with that particular Brontë. Serendipity!
This year, Kate Bush, along with other artists, has been commissioned to create another tribute to the Wuthering Heights author by providing words for a permanent art installation on the ‘wiley, windy moors‘ that inspired the famous tale.
Ok so maybe she didn’t use magic- she is a muggle after all- instead she used a projector and a steady hand… and she has some tips for anyone who may want to try something similar.
