History

The 1st Harry Potter Book Night had 10,500 parties and celebrations in total[11]

The 2nd annual HPBN had 12,600 parties and celebrations in total.[19]

By the 4th annual HPBN, the event had been celebrated in 39 different countries with over 10,000 parties taking place around the world.[2] Nicholas Filbert participated in an event in Indonesia.[9]

The 5th annual HPBN had over 476 events over the world, with the most northern event being a school party in Russia, the most southern event at the Khandallah Library, Wellington, New Zealand, and the event furthest away from any other located in an international school in China.[20] In London, Jim Kay and Chris Riddell participated their first ever joint event together at Waterstones.[21]

The 7th annual HPBN was originally scheduled to be held on 4 February 2021[22] but was rescheduled;[17] due to Covid-19 restrictions for large-scale gatherings across the world, any activities and ideas were planed by Bloomsbury to be easily adapted to any group size, and suitable for participating virtual online as many as possible.[23]
