As a team of proud Potterheads, Whovians and Ironborn, nothing makes us happier than bringing people together under the banner of geekiness.
So that’s why, like a Niffler to shiny objects, we spend our time sniffing out the best venues, vendors and entertainment to make sure our festivals are always the best they can be.
We don’t want to organise yet another convention that involves lots of standing around, we want our events to be immersive, unashamedly geeky and a whole lot of fun.
But most of all, we want our events to have you running for your cloaks, practising your swish and flicks and straightening your bowties. (Bowties are cool.)
It’s not all about geeking out
At Transfigured Town, our favourite stories have always involved ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things for those in need.
We’ve read the story of three wizards working together to save the wizarding community. We’ve watched as companions stepped into a phone box and travelled through time and space to help people in danger. And we’ve jumped for joy when old foes have put aside their differences to unite and save Westeros.
And then we realised –
why can’t we do that, too?
That’s why our events aren’t just a chance to geek out with like-minded fans, they’re a chance for ordinary people like us to be extraordinary by donating profits to charities/not-for-profits. We even offer fundraising opportunities to local community groups. Offering donations in exchange for volunteering.
(Although we might not have to duel dark wizards or fight off invading armies, the money we donate can help make a real difference to local communities.)
