Potterheads flock to Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery
More than 600 people attended the Harry Potter Book Day at the Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery on Sunday 11th February.
The art gallery was transformed into a haven of Hogwarts where Potterheads could learn how to cast spells, decorate dragon’s eggs, make magic potions and do tricks from all Harry Potter books.
The owners of HOOT, the Harry Potter memorabilia shop in Stockport, also brought along a Niffler and other magical beasts.
It was a spellbinding day for wannabe wizards and witches who experienced the magic of J.K. Rowling books and characters.
Councillor David Sedgwick, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Reform and Governance, said: “The Harry Potter Book Day was a success – well done to everyone involved in organising this event! I’m delighted that Harry Potter fans got to enjoy a full day of magical activities and celebration of this great British fantasy novel.”
