James and Oliver Phelps launch ‘Harry Potter’ exhibition in Portugal James and Oliver Phelps launch ‘Harry Potter’ exhibition in Portugal

The Phelps twins and MinaLima open ‘Harry Potter: The Exhibition’ in Lisbon

Actors James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films) and graphic design duo MinaLima (Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima) were on hand over the weekend to officially launch Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Lisbon.

For a decade, twins James and Oliver Phelps played Fred and George Weasley.

Since 2009, Harry Potter: The Exhibition has been touring the globe bringing Wizarding World props, costumes and artefacts in front of Muggle eyes. The Weasley twin actors have travelled the globe promoting the travelling exhibition and when I spoke with them at the Sydney launch in 2011 we learned that 23 shipping containers were required to carry an enormity of magical props to locations across the world.

Portuguese fans can catch Harry Potter: The Exhibition at Lisbon’s Pavilion of Portugal through until April 8. Tickets are available over at the exhibition website. (If you’re walking through the Great Hall set, make sure to look out for authentic James and Oliver Phelps graffiti carvings on the Gryffindor table.)
