OK, Potter nerds – it's your time to shine! 

If you know your whomping willows form your wizard wheezes, you can put your witchcraft and wizardry skills to the test in a massive Harry Potter quiz in Hogwarts' Great Hall. 

That's right. The Warner Bros. Studio Tour has just launched a series of quiz nights hosted in an exact replica of the famous set.

The night begins with a tour of the studios where you'll be treated to a hot meal and Butterbeer in the Backlot Café. 

Next, Potter fans will go head-to-head in the ultimate battle of HP knowledge, with trivia across the entire series of book and films. 

Expect questions on magical artefacts, defence against the dark arts, potions and care of magical creatures and a whole host of other enchanting topics. 

Up for grabs is a huge collection of exclusive Warner Bros. Studio Tour goodies, so you better start studying. 

So, if you fancy taking a trip to London on July 5, 12 or 19, book your space here.

Tickets are available from Tuesday, June 5 and cost £65 per person. 

Teams should be made of a minimum of 6 people and a maximum of 12 and you must be aged 16 or over to take part.

If you are not booking as part of a team, you will be allocated one on the evening.

BRB, booking flights. 


You know that saying "green with envy"?

Well I am currently as green as your man from the corn ad… all because of this story. 

Imgur user Destiny Blue recently coughed up $260 to have a magical Christmas dinner… in HOGWARTS GREAT HALL.

I can't right now…

Well technically it was really the Great Hall set at the Harry Potter studio tour in London, but who cares. 

Thankfully, Destiny decided to share her experience with us all, via the wonderful world of social media. 

The lucky lady shared over 30 pictures from her magical dining experience, and seriously… it looks amazing.

Did I forget to mention that all attendees got wands? 

The jealousy is too real!


Muggles around the world are celebrating today as Warner Bros has announced that magicless folk will be allowed dine in Hogwarts’ Great Hall this Christmas.

For the second year in a row, London’s Warner Bros Studio Tour is offering Potter fans the opportunity to enjoy a Christmas feast on the iconic Hogwarts set, but, as with last year, tickets are limited and bound to sell-out fast.

Guests will be greeted with drinks and canapés before gaining access to the Great Hall, which will be decked out with original props from the Harry Potter flicks.

They will then take their seats on the actual set and receive special wands to mark the occasion, before enjoying Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

Once fed, visitors will be able to explore the full Studio Tour, which includes access to the Gryffindor common room, Platform 9 ¾ and Diagon Alley.

The event will run for two days only (Wednesday December 7 and Thursday December 8) and tickets cost £240 (around €275) per person.

Tickets go on sale this Thursday, October 6, at 10am.

It was a very exciting evening for two hundred Harry Potter fans last Thursday as the lucky few got to dine in Hogwarts Great Hall

The event was hosted by Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London, which was home to all the Harry Potter sets. 

It was a bit pricey though, costing about €310 for the night, but let's be honest, it was probably worth every penny. 

The hall itself was decked out in the finest Potter/Christmas decor and one writer from Time magazine was clearly blown away by the dinner: 

"The dinner menu was as elaborate as the night itself, beginning with a first course of ham hock and broad bean terrine with pea puree and walnut bread or confit pear, stilton cheese, radicchio and watercress salad.

"The second course—served as masked Death Eaters entered the hall in clouds of smoke to take pictures with guests—was roast turkey stuffed with cranberry and sausage with cumin carrots, brussels sprouts, crispy potatoes and rich gravy or lasagne with courgette, mozzarella, basil and pepper." YUM. 

Many of the guests shared their experiences on social media, and the pictures speak a thousand words:

Potter fans, you'll be delighted with this one!

The Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London is opening up its doors for its first ever Christmas-themed dinner. 

Yep, excited yet?!

The event is due to take place on 3 December and is described as a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to feast in this iconic set."

Lucky diners will be greeted on arrival with drinks and canapés before making their way to the Hogwarts dining room which will be all dressed up for the special occasion – including original props like flaming Christmas pudding and ham studded with cherries which were used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

The over-18s only event will certainly pull on a few heartstrings of those who grew up reading J.K. Rowling's books and watching the Harry Potter movies. 

And you will receive a special little surprise as you sit down for dinner too; your own wand!

Now you can really fit in with past witches and wizards of the great hall! 

After a two-course dinner (with ALL the trimmings), fans will be able to drink Butterbeer in the Backlot Café.

Diners will then be able to walk through Diagon Alley (which will be covered in snow!), sneak into the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley's kitchen at The Burrow.

And if that wasn't enough, the next stop is Platform 9 and 3/4 where you will be treated to a selection of desserts while you explore the original Hogwarts Express. 

We have no doubt this will be the biggest party of the year, with the night set to end with music, dancing and a bar for those who want to purchase additional drinks. 

Tickets are a bit steep though, coming in at €310, however it would make a pretty unforgettable Christmas present!

Here's a look at the festive menu:
