45: Geek/Business - I Opened a Wizard's Shop. Interview with Oliver Dall.

Ahh holidays, vacations, time away. New adventures, new cultures, an opportunity to think about ideas that you don't have time to cover. Oliver Dall went to India, gatecrashed an amusements expo, and came back with the idea to open a wizarding shop.


Not just a shop, but an experience. 9 months later Oliver's Brighton opened its doors to 3 1/2 hour queues.

Robin met Oliver to talk about his inspiration, pulling it all together, and dealing with the keepers of the franchise which must not be named.
