You may not have received your Hogwarts letter yet, but you can immerse yourself in the wizarding world this summer as an outdoor cinema is showing all eight films in the franchise.
Hockwold Hall, on the Norfolk and Suffolk border near Thetford, is running the screenings in chronological order, starting with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on July 2.
This will be followed by Chamber of Secrets on July 10, Prisoner of Azkaban on July 12, Goblet of Fire on July 13, Order of the Phoenix on July 30, so you have over two weeks to recover from Cedric Diggory's death before the next one, then Half Blood Prince on August 3, Deathly Hallows: Part 1 on August 9 and Part 2 on August 15.
The films will all be shown on a 50ft screen with a laser projection system and it will give fans the chance to enjoy JK Rowling's characters on the big screen once more.
The event follows the success of Hockwold Hall's 80s series last summer, which featured iconic films from the decade such as Back to the Future and Dirty Dancing, and guests can bring their own chairs and food and drink.
