While the Harry Potter films have come to pass, the magic of J.K. Rowling’s world lives on. There’s the always thrilling adventures of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studio theme parks. On the horizon – the much anticipated HP spin-off movie the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them; as well as the Harry Potter 2 part stage show. Now, another HP experience is about to send fans on a tizzy.
According to Mashable, fans of J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world as it appeared in the movies have a once an a lifetime opportunity to eat Christmas dinner in Hogwarts’ Great Hall this year!
For the first time ever, the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London is opening its doors from 6pm to midnight on December 3rd, 2015 for a one-night-only event in which fans will eat a two course meal on the actual set where they filmed the movie before exploring the rest of the studio.
The Hogwarts dining room will be dressed for the occasion with the original props used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, including flaming Christmas puddings and hams studded with cherries. A wand will be waiting for you at your table and you’ll enjoy the first two courses of a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings on the authentic set (vegetarian option also available).
After dinner, you’ll be able to:
- Explore the Studio Tour, admiring sets such as the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley’s kitchen at The Burrrow, which will also be dressed as they were for winter scenes.
- Enjoy a selection of three festive dessert bowls on Platform 9 ¾, alongside the original Hogwarts Express.
- Drink Butterbeer in the backlot café and walk up the wizarding shopping street, Diagon Alley, before taking in the breathtaking Hogwarts castle model (covered in a layer of filmmaking snow especially for the festive season).
- Finish the evening with music and dancing, with a bar provided for those who wish to purchase additional drinks.
As the term goes “magic comes with a price”. The evening — which, as well as dinner, includes canapés, Butterbeer, a character wand, desert, drinks and entrance to the Studio Tour — will set you back a whopping £230 ($349). And that’s per person.
Booking information is available on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour website. Availability is set to go fast.
