HOGWARTS AFTER DARK
SATURDAY 28th & SUNDAY 29th OCTOBER
For two nights only, brave witches, wizards and Muggles are invited to discover ‘Hogwarts after Dark’ at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London.
The spooky evening will begin with smoking dry ice cocktails and canapés before stepping onto the red carpet through the doors of the wizarding school into the Great Hall, which will be transformed for Hallowe’en. The enchanted Great Hall ceiling will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, while the long tables will be laden with a Hallowe’en feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops.
After taking your seats, you will enjoy a delicious two-course dinner and drinks surrounded by the original props and costumes. All before being greeted with lanterns and invited to follow the spiders into the Forbidden Forest set, where you will be able to enjoy your desserts in the company of magical creatures such as Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Aragog the Acromantula.
Throughout the evening, Death Eaters will be roaming the attraction dressed in the original costumes from the film series allowing you to see up close the intricate details of the embroidered robes and hand-painted masks.
After dinner, you will be invited to explore the Studio Tour after hours, admiring sets such as the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley’s kitchen from The Burrow, before meeting members of the Prop Making Department who will be revealing the filmmaking secrets behind the ceiling full of enchanted pumpkins.
The evening continues with the chance to learn wand combat moves from Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, in preparation for a live duel with Death Eaters.
A refreshing Butterbeer will be provided in the Backlot Café and you will then have the opportunity to explore a darker Diagon Alley as the lights are dimmed, the music becomes more foreboding and the wizarding shopping street set is patrolled by Death Eaters.
The Studio Tour’s ‘Hogwarts after Dark’ events will take place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October from 7:30pm until midnight and are open to over 18s only. Guests will be seated at round tables of 10 or 12 and tickets are priced at £240pp. Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday 12th September at 10am (available to purchase online here or by calling the Visitor Services Team on 0345 084 0900).
