You Can Officially Dine at Hogwarts This Halloween
Have you ever dreamed about the day that a Hogwarts letter magically showed up on your front steps (or through the mail slot, down the chimney, etc.)? Hold onto your broomsticks, Harry Potter fans: the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London just announced that they are holding their ‘Hogwarts After Dark’ Halloween event for the second year in a row.
From October 26-28, visitors are welcomed into the Great Hall (yes, the ACTUAL set used for filming) for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. As seen in the movies, the Great Hall will be decked out with over 100 floating pumpkins, and the long tables will be adorned with apples, pumpkins, and cauldrons of lollipops.

Surrounded by the original props and costumes from the films, guests will take their place where Harry, Ron, and Hermione once sat for their daily meals. The dinner is two courses and includes a meat, vegetarian, and vegan option, so those with dietary restrictions can take part in the festivities. Harry Potter-esque food options include smoked duck with pumpkin puree and blood orange jelly and forest mushroom, roasted shallot, and Madeira suet pudding.
After dinner, grab a lantern and follow the spiders into the newly opened Forbidden Forest, where sweets such as spiced pumpkin brulee and dark chocolate and fruit tarts are served. Guests are then invited to grab a Butterbeer at the Backlot Café, wander the Studio Tour after hours, and even learn wand combat moves by Wand Choreographer Paul Harris. Those skills might come in handy, too: Death Eaters roam the halls throughout the evening (oh, did we forget that slight detail?).
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, August 28 BST. But like Harry when he sees the golden snitch, you might want to act fast.
