HOGWARTS AFTER Dark is back!
Warner Bros. Studios, the home of the incredibly popular Harry Potter Studio Tour, announced that their hit Halloween festival will be taking place again this October.
Gryffindors, Slytherins, Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws alike are invited to put aside their differences and come together for a feast in the Great Hall.
Hopefully there won’t be any trolls in the dungeon this time, but the honorary Hogwarts students can expect to see floating pumpkins, cauldrons full of lollipops and Death Eaters roaming the halls, before being served desert in the company of the majestic Buckbeak the Hippogriff and the terrifying Aragog the Acromantula. Luckily, everyone there will be ‘friends of Hagrid’s’, so they should be safe...
The four-hour special tour will allow access to fan favourites such as The Forbidden Forest and Diagon Alley, and the ticket-holders will even get the chance to meet people who worked on the phenomenon, including Wand Choreographer (How cool is that job title?!) Paul Harris.
The Warner Bros website lays out the timeturner—sorry, timetable—for the evening, and promises cocktails, dinner in the Great Hall, a lantern trail into the Forbidden Forest and exploring a darkened Diagon Alley, before coming to an end at the witching hour (Or midnight, for muggles).
If you’re already itching to grab your Firebolt and fly to Leavesden where the studios are based you might want to take a detour to Gringott’s—because the evening will put you £240 out of pocket.
If your vault is piled high with gold Galleons and you want to attend the event, you can purchase tickets here.
