FAQ’s

What does my registration get me?

Not just a walk but a magical day out. All of the above. Every registered walker receives a wizard outfit, route map with activities, and a dated ceremonial wand on completion! Your registration ID confirms your participation in the world record attempt and enables you to join the Order of Alderley Official Wizard Register!

Will we enjoy the event as much if we come without a daddy?

Absolutely! The majority of the event is aimed at families of any combination. ‘Dare your Daddy’ challenges and other fun activities at the Wizard Council Gathering can be enjoyed by all wizards and muggles!

I don't want to dress as a wizard, can I still join in?

Absolutely! All children walking the route must be attended by an adult but we appreciate that not all are wizard material. We ask that you buy a ticket and fully enjoy the event with your children. Please let us know on arrival so that we can omit your registration ID off the Guinness World Record attempt.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to attend the event?

This event is open to everyone in the family. Grandaddy’s and babies in buggies welcome. You must bring your registration ID so we can match you up with your walker wristband. This will also help us evidence the official Guinness World Record attempt.

The Quidditch League is open to ages 6+. Our more mature, athletic and competitive wizards should please have this in mind when planning a team and when playing. As a semi-contact game all players will be asked to sign a waiver. Parent or guardians will be asked to sign on behalf of children.

Can I sign up for Quidditch on the day?

Sorry – no. There are 100 places creating 10 teams of 10 to form the league. It takes some planning. Please help us make it great by signing up in advance.

How do I get a certificate of participation in the World Record?

We are fantastically excited to award certificates to schools, groups, and organisations that have a name (to award to) and register 25 or more wizards! However, any individual wizard attending can purchase their own from the Guinness World Record website.

Do I need to buy a ticket to take part soley in the Guinness World Record? 

No. You must however be dressed as a wizard! ….And as you will not have an allocated ID from pre-registration you will need to obtain a numbered wristband when you arrive.

How accessible is the route? 

We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure the route is widely accessible. Wheelchairs and buggy’s with a middle terrain wheel will breeze through, small castors will not. And it does cross a field so we shall use our collective power of sorcery to summon great weather for the week before!

Alderley Edge village is located on the A34, Congleton Road, with easy access from the M56 and M60. It’s train station about 0.4 mile walk through the park or high street to the Wizard Walk start point. Parking is limited in the village but surrounding roads are available.

What is Maxipotential and why should I support it?
