Our cameraman Simon had the pleasure of travelling aboard the Northern Belle at the weekend, on a special trip from Grimsby t0 Alnwick Castle where Harry Potter magic would be re-created for the charity When You Wish Upon a Star.

The journey began at the crack of dawn, when the steam train transported children with life threatening illnesses, their families, and Harry Potter look-a-likes on this memorable journey to the castle that featured as Hogwarts in many of the movies.

“All of the children are very, very deserving. They suffer from terminal or a life-threatening illness, so we like to do things where we can create a bit of magic and do something a bit different.”  – Joanne Heywood – When You Wish Upon a Star
