To support the Lumos Foundation, many familiar faces from the Wizarding World got together to record some festive favourites.

Fancy hearing David Bradley (AKA Argus Filch) try his hand at some Bing Crosby? Or Dan Fogler and Ezra Miller join up for a Hanukkah classic? These are just a few of the joys of A Magical Time of Year, a new compilation album recorded to raise money for the Lumos Foundation, a charity founded by J.K. Rowling.


Various cast members from the likes of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and the Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter films, lent their voices to create this seasonal collection just in time for the holiday season. Take a look at the track list to see who got involved.

Professor Flitwick actor and Lumos ambassador Warwick Davis, one of the contributors to the album, said of the experince:

'I had such fun singing ’Merry Christmas Everyone’, a song I’ve loved since the original recording by Shakin’ Stevens. Through your support of this album, you’ll be helping Lumos make a real difference to the lives of children and families, and be adding a little magic to your holidays.'

A Magical Time of Year will be coming out this week on 29 November, with three teaser tracks available to download or stream from today. A percentage of the proceeds will go to the Lumos foundation, helping vulnerable children all across the world leave orphanages and reunite with their families.
