Discover something extra special behind the Great Hall doors this Christmas
Thursday 3rd December - SOLD OUT
Join us this Christmas for ‘Dinner in the Great Hall’ and enjoy being greeted on arrival with welcome drinks and canapés, before taking your seat in the iconic set.
The Hogwarts dining room will be dressed for the occasion with the original props used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, including flaming Christmas puddings and hams studded with cherries. A wand will be waiting for you at your table and you’ll enjoy the first two courses of a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings on the authentic set (vegetarian option also available).
First featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the Great Hall was home to Hogwarts’ famous feasts and the setting for many other memorable scenes such as the Sorting Ceremony in the first film where Harry is placed in Gryffindor house and the arrival of the Durmstrang and Beauxbatons students in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
After dinner, you’ll be able to:
Explore the Studio Tour, admiring sets such as the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley’s kitchen at The Burrow, which will also be dressed as they were for winter scenes.
Enjoy a selection of three festive dessert bowls on Platform 9 ¾, alongside the original Hogwarts Express.
Drink Butterbeer in the backlot café and walk up the wizarding shopping street, Diagon Alley, before taking in the breathtaking Hogwarts castle model (covered in a layer of filmmaking snow especially for the festive season).
Finish the evening with music and dancing, with a bar provided for those who wish to purchase additional drinks.
Our first ever ‘Dinner in the Great Hall’ will take place from 6pm until midnight and is open to over 18s only.
Guests will be seated at tables of 10.
Dinner in the Great Hall has proved extremely popular and is now sold out. At present, there are no plans for further dates, however, we hold a range of special features and events throughout the year – please sign up below for regular updates.
