A Harry Potter-themed holiday ball set to take place in Toronto on Dec. 8 has been cancelled after its organizers ran into legal troubles with Warner Bros.

“We have been dealing with a legal issue with Warner Brothers regarding this event,” the organizers said in a Nov. 30 letter posted to social media and their website. “We were told by the legal team of Warner Brothers that they have been shutting down events recently but they are willing to help us host this events (sic) without infringing on their copyright laws.”

The event — which was billed the “Yule Ball & Yule Time Magic Market” after a fictional Hogwarts Christmas Day celebration — has now been rescheduled for Jan. 19 as a “Wizards Ball.” The original event, which was to take place at Toronto’s Exhibition Place, was advertised as including a “Magical Feast, Wand Class, Yule Time Wizard Market, Costume Contest, Photo Booth, DJ and Dancing.”
