Thought this was a fab frrebie for any Harry Potter fans who live in Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire etc.
It's all free but you need to book tickets.
The free event - which encourages people to dress up in wizarding robes - is free and for all ages but booking is essential. Book your place by emailing stockport.artgallery@stockport (dot) gov (dot) uk or call 0161 474 4453. For more information visit the Facebook page here .
Muggles and wizards are invited to a huge Harry Potter themed festival next month.
The Harry Potter Book Day 'Fantastic Beasts' celebration will host a whole day of events and workshops, where wannabe wizards can try their hand at spells, potions and magizoology (that's the study of magical beasts for muggles).
Taking place from 11am on February 11, the Potter fest will transform the Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery into a haven of Hogwarts, with each gallery area being assigned it’s own house: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.
Slytherin House will host potion classes with Professor Yates, where you will learn of the fascinating ingredients to make your own potion to take home.
Hufflepuff House will take visitors on a journey into magizoology with Dr Xenofus Frabbet, where you can design your own magical beast.Create your own talisman in Ravenclaw House, and decorate a dragon egg or take part in fun and games in Gryffindor House.
And as well as characters in fancy dress from the film visiting on the day, Keith and Darren from Stockport’s very own Harry Potter Shop HOOT will be joining in with the fun.

Fab find
Never knew he was locked up ,
Is that what that prisoner of azkabar was about. If he's done nothing wrong let him be free.
Quite surprised he can't actually brake himself out.
Perhaps a song would help, bit like the Mandela one. Can't hurt.
You cant book places it turn up on the day

Sirius Black was the prisoner, and the guards have the power to suck out your soul so you can't escape, unless you've got plot armour
