FANS of the most famous wizard since Merlin will soon see their wait come to an end as Ipswich previews Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
To celebrate JK Rowling's second book making it to the big screen, UGC Cinema in Cardinal Park, ran a competition, along with Suffolk County Catering, for school children to design a Harry Potter poster.
Today the winner, Harry Jackson of Waldringfield Primary School, was awarded a family ticket during the school assembly to see the film.
The five-year-old's poster was of the Chamber of Secrets and Harry had no idea he was going to win until today.
