Pottering Around the UK
Tuesday, July 26 @ 7:00 pm
The Medford Public Library invites you to the virtual program “Pottering Around the UK: Real Life Locations from the World of Harry Potter.” Travel vicariously as Anglophile and former UK resident Claire Evans takes you on a historic, scenic, architectural and occasionally culinary tour of Harry Potter’s magical world. From London to Scotland and points in between, admire the amazing real-life locations film scouts picked throughout the best of the British Isles, and get tips if you’d like to visit the sites yourself one day.
Evans is a former journalist, attorney and college lecturer who started her love of most things British as she and her mother watched countless episodes of “Are You Being Served,” “Fawlty Towers” and “The Vicar of Dibley” on PBS. She went on to study abroad in London and, against the odds, she married a Brit she met in Peoria, Illinois. They moved to England, where they lived for a number of years. Outside of her work for a legal advice charity, Evans became a student of historical sites, pub dining, and tea shops. Her business, Tea with Claire, grew from friends asking for travel and relocation advice.
