About Hedwig’s Haven

We’re more than Discord server. We are magic.

Our Story

Hedwig’s Haven is a Harry Potter based fan group that takes place on Discord. Designed for Potterheads to celebrate their love for the wizarding world while making friends and having fun, it has evolved to be an escape from the muggle-world for many around the world. It was founded on March 29, 2020 by Shalane and became public on April 1, 2020.

Shalane enlisted the help of her fellow Hufflepuff, Beatriz and her real-life friend and Slytherin, Ashley. These three women joined forces, laying the foundation for the group you see now. Today we have grown to a group of around 2,000 Potterheads and continue to grow and evolve, adding new activities, games and events for all.  

In light of the controversy surrounding the words of JK Rowling against trans women, we have taken steps to distance ourselves and have made a commitment to being an inclusive community. All people are welcome!

Committed to Inclusivity

Hedwig’s Haven is proud to be an inclusive and welcoming community. We support members of the LGBTQA+ community. We disavow JK Rowling’s harmful language. There is a zero tolerance policy for any discriminatory language.

House Collaboration

Hedwig’s Haven is split up between the four canon houses from Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. You will work with your house to earn points across a term to earn the house cup!
