Do you secretly still wish UCAS had accepted your applications to Hogwarts? If so, you should join Cambridge University Harry Potter Society [CUHPS]
Of course this would exist at Cambridge. And of course you should join it. The society holds debates on all the important HP topics – the possibility of total house unity at Hogwarts?” for example – as well as fancy-dress parties, inter-house quizzes as well as many, many film nights.
Ever wondered what could be better than a Harry Potter society? How about a Harry Potter society that also does great charity work? Don’t think that exists? It does and it’s called The Harry Potter Alliance.
In the words of JK Rowling herself, “The HP Alliance is, without doubt, the purest expression of ‘the spirit of Albus Dumbledore’ yet to emerge from the Harry Potter fandom.”
