Shopkeeper wins nationwide competition for her Harry Potter-themed window.

Judges decided a Seaton bookshop’s window display promoting Harry Potter Night was so magical they awarded it first prize in a nationwide competition.

A special day of events was staged across the country to celebrate author J K Rowling’s young wizard.

To mark it, Gardners Book Suppliers asked independent bookshops to take photos of their Harry Potter window displays which they judged along with Bloomsbury, the publishers, and Seaton’s Owl and Pyramid Bookshop was the winner.

“I was so thrilled,” said owner Jenny Eagles, who won a deluxe edition of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, which, as a fan, she says she’ll treasure.
