Warner Bros. Studio Tour London Closing Again Due to COVID-19
After being closed from March to August of this year, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will be temporarily closed again as of Wednesday, November 4, at 8:00 p.m. due to the ongoing pandemic.
This comes after the British government announced that England will go back into lockdown from November 5 to December 2 to stop the spread of the second wave of COVID-19. But if the lockdowns of earlier this year are any indication, it seems likely the lockdown will be extended and the Studio Tour will remain closed beyond its currently anticipated reopening date of December 3.
Any tickets that were previously booked for dates within this timeframe will be refunded.
The Studio Tour has also temporarily suspended ticket sales for the rest of 2020 and 2021 in order to prevent further disruptions to bookings.
This brings to a halt the Celebration of Slytherin event, which was previously extended until November 12 in the wake of spring and summer lockdowns, and also disrupts the festive Hogwarts in the Snow event, which was scheduled to begin on November 14.
In happier news, unlike in the spring, the lockdown is not expected to affect filming for the next Fantastic Beasts movie since film and TV production are being allowed to continue.
