Great Yarmouth Library is holding a Hogwarts-themed event in celebration of the Harry Potter Book Night on Thursday February 2, 4.30-6.30pm.

The national event promoted by Bloomsbury Publishers encourages youngsters to dress up as their favourite character and celebrate the books by J K Rowling.

Organisers say it will be a night of wizarding fun with activities and the chance to meet some real owls from Fritton Owl Sanctuary.

Young visitors can also make special potions using a smoothie bike.

The event follows last year's successful evening on a Harry Potter theme. It is billed as 'a great night for both dedicated Potterheads and new fans to adventure into the world of magic.'
