Warner Bros order garden centre to take down festive Harry Potter display

Warner Bros have ordered a Lanarkshire garden centre to remove their Harry Potter-themed Christmas display.

Rosebank Garden Centre, based in the Clyde Valley, were this week contacted by the film giant’s legal team regarding their wizard themed scene.

The display contained a replica of the famous platform 9 3/4, a train and also their own take on the boy wizard.

However, the family-run garden centre has now removed parts of the display.

Owner Craig Forrest said: “I am a bit disappointed that we have had to take down the display. I thought it was a bit extreme.

“We were not making money from it at all or charging customers to see it, it was just a part of Christmas fun.”

He continued: “I received a list of things to change like ‘take the glasses off the wizard, remove the trolley from the platform’ and others. It is a real shame.”

Despite Christmas ‘almost being cancelled’ the garden centre have decided that they will not let it put a damper on their festive cheer.

Craig laughed: “Does the same go for Santa Claus? Because he is everywhere too!

“We have changed the display, and we are very much still in the Christmas spirit here at Rosebank!

“And we look forward to seeing everyone for some festivities in the run-up to Christmas!”

A Warner Bros. spokesperson said: “We reach out where necessary to protect our valuable intellectual property rights, especially if they are being used commercially without licence or permission.”
