Due to the popularity of previous events, booking is essential for the Harry Potter Book Night, which takes place on Thursday 2 February at Stockton Central Library.

There is fun for all the family, including a fancy dress prize draw, face painting and animal encounters provided by Kirkleatham Owl Centre.

Sweets and treats and wand-making opportunities will also be available.

Councillor Norma Wilburn, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council's Cabinet member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: "We host all kinds of fun events and activities in our libraries and the phenomenal success of the Harry Potter books means this event in particular is always a huge success.

"Due to its sheer popularity we have had to make it a ticketed event so please make sure you book a place early to avoid disappointment as there is limited availability.

"This is a brilliant opportunity to have some fun and enjoy the wonderful world of Harry Potter."

The night starts with an autism-friendly session taking place from 4pm until 5pm - this session is for visitors with an Autism Spectrum Condition. All children must be accompanied by an adult and doors will open early to ease arrival.
