4:40pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
MUSEUM bosses have been forced to cancel a half-term appearance of a Harry Potter star at a North-East attraction.
Staff at Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon planned to host the steam locomotive Olton Hall which appeared as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films.
The visit formed part of a half-term series of events but unfortunately the organisers have announced the cancellation of the engine’s visit.
However the remainder of the activities planned will still take place.
Mike the Knight will be at the museum on Wednesday, October 30 at 11am, noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm to entertain children.
Children are invited to don Halloween-themed fancy dress during visits to the museum.
There are also free legends-themed arts and crafts activities between Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, November 3 at the museum.
Entry to the museum is free and the doors are open between 10am and 4pm. Details from 01388-777999 or visit nrm.org.uk/locomotion.
