Harry Potter fans can now spend Halloween at Hogwarts and it sounds absolutely magical

Calling all muggles.

Ever wondered what it would be like to sneak into Hogwarts after dark? Then we've got some siriusly good news for you.


Warner Bros. Studio Tour London has issued an invite to all would-be wizards and witches to their Hogwarts After Dark events - and it sounds simply spellbinding.

All of the brave witches, wizards and muggles attending the event will begin their evening by stepping onto the red carpet through to the Great Hall - which will be given a spook-tabular Hallowe'en makeover.

The Great Hall will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone while the long tables will be laden with a Hallowe’en feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops.

After stepping into the actual Great Hall set that was used for filming, guests will enjoy a delicious two-course dinner and drinks surrounded by the original props and costumes.

And after all this happens, grab a lantern and following the spiders into the Forbidden Forest - that's where dessert will be served in the company of magical creatures such as Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Aragog the Acromantula.

Throughout the evening, Death Eaters will be roaming the grounds dressed in the original costumes from the film series - giving you the chance to get up-close and see the intricate details of the embroidered robes and hand-painted masks.


Guests will be invited to explore the Studio Tour after hours, having the chance to take a look inside some of the most iconic sets like the Gryffindor common, the Potions classroom and Dumbledore's office.

And there will be members of the Prop Making Department on-site, who will spill all the secrets behind the design of the intricate Death Eater masks - as well as showing just how they were created.

The evening continues with the chance to learn wand combat moves from Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, in preparation for a live duel with Death Eaters.

And after a refreshing Butterbeer in the Backlot Café, guests will have the chance to explore Diagon Alley. But be careful - as the lights start to dim and the music becomes more foreboding, there will be Death Eaters patrolling the popular shopping street.


Hogwarts After Dark will be taking place on Friday, 25 October; Saturday, 26 October and Sunday, 27 October from 7.30pm - and are open only to those age 18 and over.

You'll have to be quick if you want to snap up a ticket, though, as we reckon these are going to fly out quicker than you can say Accio, Pumpkin Juice.

Each ticket is priced at £240 and they are on sale now.
