London: Harry Potter fans recently smashed the world record for the most people dressed like Harry Potter in one place.
512 school children aged 11 to 13 gathered at Tanbridge House secondary school in Horsham, West Sussex to break the previous record of 250 Harry Patter fans, the Daily Express reported.
Organiser Ben Baker said that it was all about celebrating reading and in the past they have always dressed up.
They have been working on it for the past couple of months and had to draft in parents and helpers.
Baker added that one should not underestimate how long it took to make 512 wands, hats and accessories.
