If you’re too old to be trick-or-treating, but not old enough to not geek out about Harry Potter, consider spending a magical Halloween in Hogwarts this year. Hogwarts After Dark is an event that will take place at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter in London this October. You’ll be treated to smoking dry ice cocktails, canapés, and a full wizard-themed Halloween feast (cauldrons of lollipops included) in the Great Hall. After food and drinks, guests will be able to go on a guided studio tour, where they’ll see key sets and props from the films, including Diagon Alley, the Weasley’s kitchen, the Gryffindor Common Room, and the eerie Forbidden Forest. The best news of all: the evening is off-limits to those under 18 years of age.
But it’s not just a cursory sightseeing tour. The prop-making department from the films will be on hand, revealing all the deepest behind-the-scenes secrets — this may include an appearance from Paul Harris, wand choreographer, who may or may not help you prepare for an epic duel with Death Eaters.
Tickets for the all-inclusive, all-revealing experience aren’t cheap. They cost about $308 (£240) per person, and the experience will run from Friday, October 26th to Sunday, October 28th. Tickets become available for purchase at 10:00 AM on Tuesday August 28th, and are sold on a first-come first-served basis, so make sure you’re ready.
