Book-lovers in Costessey brought Hogwarts to Norfolk as part of an annual celebration of Harry Potter.
Students and teachers at Ormiston Victory Academy saw more than 60 people attend the event earlier this month, which was organised by school librarian Juliet Cole, including 25 Chinese exchange students currently visiting.
As part of the evening, science teacher Jonathan Badgery performed his own magic tricks, while the library was decorated with props from the film, including wands, sorting hats and cobwebs.
It was part of a global event celebrating JK Rowling's popular series of children books, and the third organised by the school as part of a wider drive encouraging students to develop their literacy skills.
Naomi Palmer, principal of the school, said: 'The evening was a fantastic opportunity for students and staff to join together in celebration of their love of books.
