Dive into the Dark Arts This Halloween with the Studio Tour
Believe it or not, it’s nearly that time of year again – Halloween, a favorite festive occasion at Hogwarts, and at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter as well! For the past few years, the Studio Tour has geared up to deliver a Dark Arts special for Halloween, and this year is no different.
As announced today, the Studio Tour will be exploring the Dark Arts again this Halloween with a special feature that will highlight the darker side of the film series.
Fans of Death Eaters, daring duels and Hallowe’en feasts are invited to delve deeper than ever before into the Dark Arts as Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter hosts a special feature dedicated to the darker side of the Harry Potter film series.
Running from Sunday, October 1 until Sunday, November 12, the feature will see the darker side of Hogwarts and the Wizarding World revealed. One of many special features will allow visitors to learn wand choreography with Paul Harris, with the opportunity to take part in an exciting backlot duel.
Demonstrating how a crowd scene like the Battle of Hogwarts would have been created during filming, visitors will test out their newly learned wand techniques as they are directed through a battle with Death Eaters who are storming the Hogwarts [b]ridge.
The Great Hall will also be decorated with pumpkins and dressed for Halloween, there will be Death Eater costumes on display, and Diagon Alley will be given an atmospheric and darker tone. And that’s not all!
Vats of slimy [t]roll snot, buckets of dribbling drool (of the three-headed dog variety) and pools of silvery unicorn blood will be showcased in the Tour, allowing visitors to get hands-on and see exactly how the slime and goo was created.
All activities and extras are included in the normal ticket price. Tickets must be pre-booked and can be booked online now.
Plus – if you’re feeling brave, then you’re invited to attend a spooky dinner in the Great Hall for the first time ever. Following on from the success of the Christmas– and Valentine’s-themed dinners, this special dinner will run for two nights only.
Guests will be able to sit down to a spooky two[-]course dinner in the Great Hall before being greeted with lanterns and invited to follow the spiders into the Forbidden Forest set for dessert.
Find out more about Hogwarts After Dark here. The dinner will be running on October 28 and 29, and tickets go on sale on September 12 at 10 a.m. BST. Tickets for the dinners are priced at £240.
