On 15 August 2010, Matthew Lewis – who plays the character of Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films – made a guest appearance at the Museum, signed autographs, and climbed aboard the Hogwarts Express.

We held a competition in which the prize was to meet Matthew and hold an exclusive face-to-face interview with him. The lucky winner was 9-year-old Ella Christian, and you can see her interview below.

Cab access to Hogwarts Express continues until the end of the summer holidays. See our Summer 2010 page for more details.
