Harry Potter enthusiasts returned to the Back to Hogwarts event, after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic

Marking the new year, students can test out their wizarding skills, with a special wand training workshop held by wand choreographer Paul Harris, who worked on the Harry Potter films.

Potterheads swapped their normal uniforms for their favorite Hogwarts robes and characters. A special version of the Hogwarts express was boarded, only platform nine and three-quarters was out of bounds to muggles.

Back to Hogwarts runs from in King's Cross Station in London from 1 September to 4 September.

The cast of Cursed Child helped round off the festivities, entertaining the crowds with their famous wand dance, a key set-piece from the award-winning play.
