BASINGSTOKE’S witches and wizards gathered at a bookshop in Festival Place to celebrate Harry Potter Book Night.

Cosplayers from the Basingstoke Cosplay Collective were in full costume to host the magical night at a Potter-themed Waterstones on Thursday last week.

This was the third annual event the group has hosted with this year’s showcase featuring a host of activities including Harry Potter bingo, a quiz, prizes for the best children’s costume and many more.

The collective will be back in costume this weekend at the We Love Harry Potter event at the Discovery Centre from 10am to 1pm on Saturday.
