After eating, visitors will be able to explore the Studio after dark when it’s being patrolled by Death Eaters. They will even have the chance to learn combat moves to defend themselves in a live duel with a Death Eater who will be patrolling the studios while guests are enjoying Hogwarts After Dark. Tickets will go on sale on August 26.

In addition to this announcement, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter has also revealed that its popular Dark Arts feature is returning this September (September 24–November 7). The feature focuses on Lord Voldemort’s (and his loyal followers) Dark Mark, which you can follow through the studio. You can collect a Studio Tour passport and spot the Dark Mark in each set.

The Great Hall will also be decorated with 100 floating pumpkins, just like how it was decorated in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone before the troll made his grand entrance in the girls’ bathroom. The pumpkins are uniquely carved and designed by the head prop maker on the Harry Potter series, Pierre Bohanna. It certainly promises to give us all the Halloween/fall feels.

You can also learn wand skills, just like you can on the After Dark night. Visitors will be able to learn the wand combat scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, where they will be able to put their skills to the test and duel Death Eaters.

Who else is super excited to see the Studio Tour for Halloween? After all, it’s the most wizard-like time of year.

Press Release

FOLLOW THE DARK MARK THIS HALLOWE’EN AT
WARNER BROS. STUDIO TOUR LONDON

Issued: 19th August 2021

Something dark is brewing at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter as fans get the chance to follow the Dark Mark during the popular Dark Arts feature this October.

From Friday 24th September [to] Sunday 7 November, the Dark Arts feature will focus on the symbol of Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters as the Dark Mark is projected throughout the Studio Tour for fans to follow on their visit. Between the imposing trees of the Forbidden Forest or the turrets of the Hogwarts Castle model, visitors can collect a Studio Tour passport on arrival and go on the hunt for the Dark Mark.

In celebration of Hallowe’en, a fan-favourite [sic] returning this year will be the 100 floating pumpkins in the magnificent Great Hall, as seen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Each uniquely carved pumpkin was hand-crafted by [the] Head Propmaker on the Harry Potter film series, Pierre Bohanna, and his team as well as much of the Hallowe’en feast, which will laden the tables of the Great Hall.

Visitors to the Studio Tour are also invited to learn the moves behind a wand combat scene, just like the Battle of Hogwarts, in a live duel with Death Eaters. The Wand Choreographer from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Paul Harris, described the importance of wand combat as a ‘’physical element to casting a spell, because otherwise what makes one wizard better than another?’’ Fans will learn a sequence from the famous battle scene and practise their spells on Death Eaters during their visit.

Brave guests are invited to dine amongst Death Eaters as the Studio Tour’s Hogwarts After Dark events return this year. Available on 6th, 7th and 8th October, guests will start their evening with smoking dry ice cocktails and canapés before venturing into the Great Hall, decorated with 100 floating pumpkins. All new for 2021, guests will enjoy a delicious two-course dinner amongst the popular interior sets of the Studio Tour including the Potions classroom and Dumbledore’s office. The lights will be dimmed and the music more foreboding as the Studio Tour will be patrolled by Death Eaters during the spooky evening.

After finishing their meal, guests will grab a lantern and follow the spiders into the Forbidden Forest, where dessert will be served amongst the imposing trees and creatures found in the out[-]of[-]bounds section of Hogwarts. Throughout the evening, guests will duel with Death Eaters and learn about movie magic such as creating troll snot and unicorn blood from the iconic movie scenes.
