BRAVE WITCHES, WIZARDS AND MUGGLES
Hogwarts After Dark is back for another year for Hallowe’en
with an exclusive after-hours magical evening.
Begin your magical evening by 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 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 Dumbledore’s office, before meeting members of the Prop Making Department who will divulge the secrets behind the design of the intricate Death Eater masks seen in the films and demonstrate how they were painstakingly created.
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 25th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th 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 10:00am on Tuesday 30th July.
