'Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home', they say.
But what does a muggle do if they can’t go to Hogwarts? 🏰
Well, they turn their own house into Hogwarts instead. ✨

“My collection helped me through a lot.” – Tracey Nicol-Lewis
Tracey also holds the record for largest collection of Wizarding World memorabilia. She loves Fantastic Beasts and The Cursed Child too.
Her collection spans from Hogwarts to Ilvermorny, from Harry Potter to the adventures of Newt Scamander, in a magical world that kept growing with the years. 🧙
She even had a Harry Potter themed wedding! ✨💍
The character Tracey relates to the most is Tonks.
“I change my hair colour all the time. I’m not your normal person, I like to be different” she explained.
Tracey has been lucky enough to meet over 50 of the actors and actresses from the films, and one of her favourite memories is meeting Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). 🤩
