Christmas is coming to Great Yarmouth library on Saturday.

The popular community hub is hosting its festive fayre from 11am to 2pm with a DVD sale, knitted items, charm reading, craft and cakes.

Meanwhile the History of Magic exhibition inspired by Harry Potter continues.

In partnership with the British Library it features displays about spells and magic.

The display includes specially designed panels showing images of rare books, manuscripts and magical objects featured in the British Library’s exhibition, as well as images of material from JK Rowling and Bloomsbury’s own collections.

There is a family trail and on December 9, 11-1pm there are family crafts on a magical theme.

Also on Thursday December 14 there is drama, adventure, songs, role-play and story telling with a professional tutor from Little Peoples Drama Company.

The event which revolves around the character of Stick Man is for two to four year olds, £4 per child.
