London Studio Tour to Host Valentine’s Dinner in the Great Hall

After the resounding success of the London Studio Tour’s Christmas Dinner in the Great Hall – which sold out almost immediately despite high ticket prices – those who missed out during the holidays will have another chance to celebrate at Hogwarts, this time with a Valentine’s dinner.

On Saturday, February 13 and Sunday, February 14, guests will have the chance to experience a truly magical evening! Here’s the description from the website:

You are invited to attend a bewitching banquet this February for ‘Valentine’s Dinner in the Great Hall’. You’ll be greeted on arrival with welcome drinks and canapés (including a special Love Potion cocktail),before taking your seats on the authentic Great Hall set.

Sitting at individual tables for two decorated with flowers and candles, you and your partner will enjoy a delicious three-course dinner including a starter, main course and assiette of desserts to share. You’ll then be given exclusive after-hours access to the Studio Tour with the chance to see sets such as the Gryffindor common room, Dumbledore’s office, the Weasley kitchen at [t]he Burrow and the Malfoy Manor dining table before enjoying a drink on Platform 9 3/4.

Following a tankard of [b]utterbeer in the backlot cafe, you will be able to wander up the wizarding shopping street of Diagon Alley before arriving at the breathtaking Hogwarts [C]astle model for after-dinner tea, coffee and chocolates. The evening concludes when you return to the Studio Tour lobby to collect your chosen wand.

It won’t be cheap to attend, however – tickets are £247.50 each, or £495 for a pair. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, January 13. The menu is set to include Hertferdshire lamb rack or Croxton Manor goats cheese with potato gnocchi as a main course, with delights such as grilled artichoke hearts, Valrhona chocolate pave, Champagne and strawberry panacotta, and more for starters and dessert.
