Fans of J K Rowling’s wizarding world will have the chance to take part in a scavenger hunt around Bury St Edmunds this weekend.

The town’s Cineworld complex has teamed up with seven town centre businesses to celebrate Fridays’s release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, with Warner Bros Pictures and Cineworld offering the chance to win cinema tickets and a range of other prizes.

Shops and cafes will be displaying posters of some of the creatures depicted in the film and intrepid scavengers will have to make their way around the town centre, solving the clues and finding all the mystical animals.

The competition will run from Friday until Monday, with entry forms available at Cineworld and through the ‘CineworldBSE’ Facebook page.

It is being run in partnership with the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Ourburystedmunds.

Mark Cordell, chief executive of Ourburystedmunds, said it was great to see so many BID members working together to promote the event.

He added: “The Christmas lights will have been switched on the day before the scavenger hunt starts which will give the town centre an added magical atmosphere for the participants.”

Competition organiser Harriet Last, of Cineworld in Parkway, said: “The scavenger hunt doesn’t require any magic powers, but will take you into some lovely shops and businesses across Bury St Edmunds.

“We are thrilled that so many Ourburystedmunds member businesses wanted to share the excitement of this movie’s opening weekend and we are especially grateful to Waterstones who have also contributed to the prizes we’re giving away.”
