FRIDAY 26th, SATURDAY 27th & SUNDAY 28th OCTOBER
Following last year’s incredibly popular events, we are once again inviting brave witches, wizards and Muggles to enjoy a magical Hallowe’en evening on the set of the Hogwarts Great Hall.
Begin your magical evening 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 completely transformed for Hallowe’en. The Great Hall 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 stepping into the actual Great Hall set that was used for filming, you will enjoy a delicious two-course dinner and drinks surrounded by the original props and costumes. All before grabbing a lantern and following the spiders into the newly opened Forbidden Forest where dessert will be served in the company of magical creatures such as Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Aragog the Acromantula.
Throughout the evening, Death Eaters will be roaming the Tour 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 are 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 Friday 26th, Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th 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 go on sale at 10am on Tuesday 28th August.
