The Byron Prophet


The Byron Prophet

‘I solemnly swear that I am eating cake’ proclaims the Prisoner of Colwick.

Housed in a very savoury prison, daily rituals begin by practising the art of reading tea leaves. Seeking in earnest what the future holds, using the darkest secrets of magic, the earl grey is infused in traditional scones. Once imbued, the tea leaves true colours are shown as the grim appears. The prisoner transforms into the grim and escapes unnoticed.

Past the boundary walls and setting sight on the wizarding village near Colwick Hall’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Quenching thirst with a rejuvenating blend of butterscotch apple cider and ginger (otherwise known as buttery cider beer), the prisoner looks for a better means of traversing to Colwick Hall, to travel more efficiently and with less danger of being spotted. Casting a glance to the broomstick in the shop window next door, it’s polished wood and gleaming gold handle engraved ‘COLWICK FIREBOLT’. This was the miracle that had been read in the tea leaves after the grim was spotted.

The Byron Prophet Afternoon Tea

The wardens are back to haunt as they float towards the captive, their silhouetted cloaks billowing in the wind eager to give their deathly kiss. Looking at the firebolt, thoughts are vitalised with new hope, creating the counterspell and compelling captors to edge away. A golden cake pop flies out of the Chocolate Leaking Cauldron. The prisoner seizes this window of opportunity and reaches out for the broomstick, commands it to rise and soars away in search of a new place of refuge, Colwick Hall’s School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.
