Happy birthday Harry Potter

Staff celebrate Harry Potter's birthday

On 31st July, we celebrated Harry Potter’s birthday in style by sharing our birthday wishes on our Twitter page, blowing up balloons and, of course, eating birthday cake!

Our team are huge Harry Potter fans and couldn’t wait to celebrate Harry’s birthday; this video captures some of their birthday wishes.

Did you know the scenes for Harry’s childhood home, number four, Privet Drive, were originally shot on an actual street? Filmmakers built the replica homes you can see at the Studio Tour for the later films when it was realised they would be used regularly.
