Storyhouse library team leader Linda Tyson said: “It was such a wonderful event. A real feeling of being part of something special; a Potter community.

“Some of the costumes were truly incredible, and the enthusiasm was contagious – the entire building was fizzing.

“Storyhouse has such a fun community - where people come out and take part, get involved and feel part of something. It was just fabulous!”
