The Wizard Academy on April 11 will let trainee wizards realise their dreams of boarding a train and steaming off to magic school.

A spokesman added: "On the journey they will get to take part in an interactive adventure to help teachers at the Grand Old School of Wizardry rescue an artefact from the clutches of villainous warlocks.

"All while travelling through the Irwell Valley on one of England’s best steam railways.
