UPDATED: Lumos Sweepstakes: Win a VIP Tour at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London
For Potterheads, this December promises excitement and festivities in the form of Hogwarts in the Snow at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, and the charity Lumos is giving you the chance to enter a sweepstakes to win a VIP tour at the Studio Tour next year.
The lucky winner and three friends will marvel at the mesmerizing sets of the Great Hall, Gringotts Wizarding Bank, the Gryffindor common room, and many more and will see the iconic wizarding costumes and magical props worn and used by the actors themselves.
They will get to meet and chat with actor Jason Isaacs, who played the villainous Slytherin Lucius Malfoy, and will then dine in the magnificent Hogwarts Great Hall for a mouthwatering feast.
Update (January 16, 2021):

Be sure to enter by January 18, 2021, for a chance at winning the VIP Harry Potter and the Cursed Child experience.
For the chance to win this unforgettable experience, you can enter for free, or if you are able to, please donate $10 or more to support the charity Lumos, which fights for the rights of children all over the world, aiming to end institutionalization and reunite children with loving families, providing them with better and safer futures.

If you’re planning a visit to the Studio Tour before January 17, 2021, you’ll be able to see Hogwarts in the Snow, which features exciting new additions such as the Christmas feast from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and a snowy Diagon Alley – something that wasn’t even shown in the films. In addition to this, magical new special effects can be found in the fireplaces throughout the Studio Tour.
