Dinner in the Great Hall

Enjoy Christmas Dinner in the Great Hall

Monday 27th November, Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th December 2023

Enjoy a Christmas meal at Hogwarts this year with the return of Dinner in the Great Hall. Dress up and arrive for a drink and canapes reception in the Studio Tour lobby before stepping into the Great Hall, spectacularly transformed for the Christmas season.


Follow the red carpet to take your seats for a delicious two-course dinner in the Great Hall surrounded by impressive Christmas decorations, and the long Hogwarts house tables featuring the end-of-term Christmas banquet as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, flaming puddings included. 

Once you have completed your dinner, explore the Studio Tour after-hours, with a misting drink in hand served from the Potions Classroom. Follow the dance steps learnt by Neville Longbottom ahead of the Yule Ball in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Enter the snowy Forbidden Forest and arrive on Platform 9 ¾ where you will be served a drink and dessert canapés.

Collect your souvenir gift from the newly reopened Christmas shop or sip on a refreshing Butterbeer in the Backlot Café before resuming your tour through Diagon Alley, where you find the shop windows frosted and its iconic cobbled road covered in snow.

Spend a moment to find the minuscule snowman figurine hidden around the magnificent Hogwarts Castle model which will glisten with snow. Your night will end in the Studio Tour lobby, where you can test out the dancing skills you’ve learnt in a magical disco under the belly of the Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon, with a bar provided for any additional drink purchases.
