A POPULAR attraction has announced it will open a third venue in Chester in May.

The Potion’s Cauldron Group is to open a ‘Hole In Wand’ mini golf course in the city centre.

The moves comes as part of a major expansion drive, which will also include York and other UK locations.

The company is already recruiting for a Venue Manager (Chief Wizard) to help run the 9-hole attraction.

The group celebrated five magical years in October 2023 and already has ‘The Hole In Wand’ mini golf attractions in both York and Blackpool, as well as retail outlets under ‘The Potions Cauldron’ brand in the historic cities of York and Edinburgh.

The 9-hole mini golf attraction will be located on Eastgate Street, with prices starting from only £6.99 per player and each player will receive one of the signature potions to take away worth £3.49, made by The Potions Cauldron Group depending on their score.

This includes the award winning Basilisk Blood, Tears of a Wizard, Unicorn Essence and Serpents Venom.

The attraction is set to be open all year round in order to compliment the current offerings to both tourists to the city as well as local residents while creating some magical memories.

Chief enchantment officer and co- founder Ben Fry, said “Chester is steeped in its own history, much like York and Blackpool therefore Chester is the perfect city for The Hole In Wand mini golf to continue its expansion in the UK."

Phil Pinder, director of Wizardry and co-founder, said: “Each golf course has its own magical story based on the history of the area with York focused heavily on the Georgian period, Blackpool on the Pendle Valley and Witches trials, Chester naturally lends itself to Roman inspiration with a dash of Unicorn!”.

The Hole in Wand York was recently shortlisted as visitor attraction of the year at the Visit York awards and The Hole in Wand Blackpool was shortlisted in the same category at the Visit Lancashire awards.
