Don Your Dress Robes for a Halloween Party in a Place of “Potter” History

Whether it’s trolls in the dungeon, deathday parties, or surprise visits from escaped prisoners, Halloween is always an eventful time of year for students at Hogwarts! Luckily for those magical folk who have already graduated from the famous school of witchcraft and wizardry (or indeed, from Ilvermorny), the Blantyre Resort and Estate is hosting a Harry Potter-inspired Halloween party, in the very place where John Williams’ iconic soundtrack was written.



Located in the Berkshires, Massachusetts, the Blantyre Resort and Estate will host its Potter-inspired adults-only Halloween party on October 27. The event will take place in the gilded age mansion, a grand-looking building that was built in 1902 and situated on 110 acres of country estate. This historic mansion not only looks magical but was also the place where John Williams wrote the original score for the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.


Join us for a magical Halloween party inspired by Harry Potter and the magical world of Hogwarts. Our gilded age mansion (where John Williams wrote the score to the Harry Potter films) is the perfect backdrop to enjoy music, food, butter beer & more. Visit

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
