Be Part of Something Magical for York - A New Wizard-Themed Mini-Golf Experience for All the Family - Opening Feb 2021

by Phil Pinder in York, England, United Kingdom

From the minds of the chief wizards behind The Potions Cauldron on The Shambles comes a brand new experience for all the family to enjoy, right in the heart of York in February 2021. The extra funding we raise will allow us to add even more magical theming to the venue!

The Hole In Wand - Mini Golf & Magical Events

13 wand-erful holes are planned, if the Crowdfunder target is met, to enchant guests - all themed in the marvellously-magical world that will be created in Coppergate - in the building that was Patisserie Valerie.  

It won’t just be magic-mini-golf on offer; we also want to be the venue for spellbinding birthday celebrations for all the little witches and warlocks. We will be summoning up a series of attractive and affordable packages with magically-inspired experiences to make sure these parties are the talk of the playground!

That’s not all! We will also be serving a selection of restorative potions and brews, as well as a tasty food offer that will help you get your energy back after all the fun you’ve had on the courses.

Who Is the Hole In Wand Aimed At?

In short, we want everyone to feel welcome. Our experience is aimed at families, but you can have fun whatever your age! 

We want to be a place that people keep returning to, and we will be making sure our experience is constantly changing. This means that you and your family can keep coming back time and time again if you’re from Haxby or Hebdon Bridge, Acomb or Alesbury and everywhere in-between. 

The Hole In Wand will be a place for everyone to enjoy at any time of the year. 

How You Can Make the Magic Happen

To make this dream of a brand-new, family-friendly attraction a reality we are looking to raise £20,000, alongside the significant investment being put forward by our Wizards-in-Chief, and we want to do this with your support by joining our Magic Wanders Club. 

In exchange for your much-appreciated contribution, we will be offering a series of unique rewards and offers as part of the Magic Wanders Club. Everyone who pledges support gets early access to all pre-booking slots for the attraction and any special events throughout the year, as well as the offers included in each membership level. 

Your Rewards have no time limit on them - you can enjoy your wonderfully-magical experience at a time to suit you!

This project is taking place to bring back more fun and joy into the city in a post-COVID-19 world.
