But fear not - two more dates have been added to the event at Manchester's Printworks in October.

Magical merchandise will be on sale at a Diagon Alley-themed street market, and a snitch tells us there may be a Quidditch pitch to play on too.

Actor appearances are due to be announced for theHalloween-inspired dates.
