An event to celebrate the magic of Harry Potter has been organised by Hamilton Central Library.

With the launch of J K Rowling's new book, The Cursed Child, the Central Library team was keen to embrace the hype and find a way to celebrate.

Upon arrival fans will be sorted into one of the four Hogwarts houses and given the chance to earn points through various activities.

Wizards from the winning house will be awarded a spot in a special wand making workshop, which will be held at a later date. To earn points fans will test their knowledge in a quiz, hunt Diagon Alley and participate in a potion writing class.
