Harry Potter lookalikes were a magic addition at Queensferry Library, which staged a themed event – with strictly no Muggles allowed!

Up to 60 children between primaries one and seven and around 30 parents – all in a variety of guises –turned out at the Hopetoun Road facility.

Library staff also got in on the act, dressing up as teachers at Hogwart’s.

Library manager Nicola Toner said: “It was a very successful event with up to 60 children coming along.

“The children were split up into teams after the Hogwart’s houses, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.Each team then had to make wands, take part in a transformation class where they had to pretend they were animals and concoct some magic potions.”

Nicola then read out a chapter from one of the popular Harry Potter books.

She said: “We have received great feedback from both parents and from local schools regarding the event.

“We will look to 
repeat a similar workshop soon, this time around with a different author.”

Prizes were handed out for the best fancy dress outfits. They went to Sam Harris (5) and Grace McWalter (8).
