Halloween Comes To Hogwarts At Warner Brothers Studio Tour London
Somehow it's almost the end of summer, which means Christmas will be here before we know it. But before that happens, we at least get to enjoy the best holiday of the year - Halloween. And if you're a Harry Potter fan, there's a real treat coming your way.
In the run-up to All Hallow's Eve, Muggles - that is, ordinary human folk - will be able to attend the Hogwarts After Dark events at the Warner Brothers Studio in London for an adults-only event.
What that means is attendees will get to enjoy canapés and cocktails (which is why it's an 18+ event) before stepping into the Great Hall for a two-course meal where they can dine alongside floating pumpkin displays.
That's not all, though. Those in attendance also get an after hours studio tour where they'll get to check out famous Harry Potter sets such as Diagon Alley, the Gryffindor common room (sorry, Slytherins!) and, perhaps most excitingly of all, the Forbidden Forest.
As well as being fully immersed in the magic of the films - which, as everybody knows, were based on the best-selling books by author JK Rowling - you'll also get to learn some of the tricks of the trade, including behind-the-scenes secrets courtesy of the prop making department.
That means finding out how the enchanted pumpkins - the ones who'll be joining you during the meal - were made in the film.
Wand Choreographer Paul Harris - who clearly has the best job title in the world, if not the best job - will also be on hand to help prepare visitors for a live duel with Death Eaters. Who, incidentally, will also be roaming around the Tour dressed in original costumes that were used in the films.
The evenings will end with dessert and butterbeer, which you might need when you find out that the cost of tickets is £240 ($310) per person.
Still, superfans will surely feel there's no price too high for an experience like this.
The Hogwarts After Dark events will take place in the Watford Studio Tour on 26, 27 and 28 October, from 7.30pm to midnight, and a free shuttle will be running to and from Watford Junction station, so you won't need a broom or a magic train platform to get there.
Tickets go on sale on the studio website at 10am on 28 August.
