Welcome to the Frost Fair!

Welcome to the Hogwarts Frost Fair!

 

As happens most years, the Hogwarts grounds are blanketed in snow and the lake has frozen solid. So, the professors have decided that as an end of term treat, the school should hold its very own Frost Fair on the surface of the lake.

 

Frost Fairs used to be held in London in centuries gone by, when the river Thames around the historic London Bridge froze solid. People set up stalls, games and other entertainments on the ice and the public flocked to the unusual event.

 

So, that’s exactly what we’ve done too! We’ve made the most of the chilly weather and set up a series of cosy stalls and activities for you to enjoy on and around the lake. Grab yourself some ice skates and a mug of something warming, then get exploring. Watch out for flying snowballs!

 

Each of the 12 stalls/areas has a fun, frosty task for you to complete. There’s a mixture of creative and puzzles on offer. Instructions for how to submit will be given in each task post.

 

 If you struggle with any of the tasks due to accessibility reasons, just let us know and we’ll find an alternative that suits you better.

 

 Each puzzle is worth 10 rubies (with 1 offering a bonus of 5 rubies) and each creative task is worth 15, so there’s 155 up for grabs in total. As a special Frost Fair bonus, we’ll also be offering the same number of beans for each task!

 

Everything is due on the 8th of January at 11:59 PM HOL-time to give you plenty of time to explore and complete things at your own pace.

 

Let the frosty fun commence!

It’s time to bid farewell to the Frost Fair!

We’d like to thank you all for making merry with us out here on the ice. We’ve had tons of fun admiring your chilly creations and dodging snowballs.

All rubies should have been awarded now but if you think we’ve missed something, please let us know so we can look into it. An impressive number of people did every task available and earned the full 155, so kudos to you all!

Now, we’d better head back inside before the ice starts to melt…

Beans should also be sent! The tool seems to have glitched and left someone off but there's no way for me to see who, so if you didn't get your beans just now, please let me know.
