The world premiere for the final installment of the Harry Potter film series will be held in Trafalgar Square.

London's landmark square will host a red carpet film premiere for the first time for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows - Part 2 on 7th July 2011.

The stars of the film will start the night on the red carpet at Trafalgar Square, before making their way to the Leicester Square cinemas to watch the film.

Mayor Boris Johnson said: "For the last decade we've been gripped by the on-screen battle between Harry Potter and his arch enemy Lord Voldemort and this is one of the most eagerly awaited films in history.

"As befits a great British triumph, I can think of no better venue than the iconic surroundings of Trafalgar Square in which to stage the most spectacular of send offs for this dramatic finale."

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows - Part 2 opens in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on July 15th 2011.
