A Scottish school will soon be transformed into a Harry Potter inspired wizard school - complete with wand duelling classes, quidditch and chocolate frogs. 

The school will welcome actors and props from the hit book and film series for its School of Witchcraft and Wizardry event. 

The magical event, will be held on August 3, 4 and 5 at Loretto School's Pinkie Campus, in Musselburgh, East Lothian. 

It will include quidditch, a nimbus 2000 green screen, chocolate frogs, costume competitions and live stage shows. 

The Weasley family's flying car will even be making an appearance and children and adults can enjoy wand duelling classes, inspired by J.K Rowling's fantasy series. 

And it's set to be a star studded event with some of the films favourite actors already being announced in attendance, with more still to come. 

Madam Irma Pince, the librarian in The Chamber of Secrets, played by Sally Mortemore will be in attendance, as well as Josh Herdman, who plays Goyle. 

Loretto parent and Harry Potter fan, Fiona Quilietti organised the event and says she is "really excited". 

Fiona said they are expecting up to 2,500 people on each day of the event. 

"It's been about six months behind the scenes planning. The event will be the first of its kind in East Lothian" 

"Driving along past the racecourse every day, seeing the beautiful gates, looking at the grounds and buildings of Loretto really got my imagination going. 

"Once I was inside, that was it - it was like stepping into the corridors of the wizarding school itself. 

"The greatest thing these magical books have given us is the power to use our imagination no matter what age we are.

"This is a gathering of fans of all ages who will have the chance to be part of something very special." 

Both children and adults are invited to follow suit and dress up as their favourite character in a bid to win the grand prize. 

Jonathan Hewat, Loretto's director of communications, said: "We can't think of a finer or more appropriate setting for this three-day School of Witchcraft and Wizardry than Loretto School's 400-year-old Pinkie House. 

"It promises to be a fabulously entertaining event and I am greatly looking forward to attending."

The event will also be raising money for CHAS (Children's Hospice Association Scotland).
