Warner Bros. Studio Tour showcases artworks

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will turn the spotlight on the artists who helped created the world seen in the Harry Potter films (February 9-19).

Coinciding with the half-term holidays, the exhibition will explore the crafts and artistry that conjured Harry’s wizarding world, including technical drawings, white card models and props.

Original members from the art department will demonstrate film-making techniques including live wand-making demonstrations.

Also in February, visitors can book Valentine’s Dinner in the Great Hall (February 9-10).

Guests have after-hours access to the Studio Tour, a tankard of butterbeer and their choice of wand.

The Goblet of Fire will be celebrated at the attraction for almost five months, with the goblet and other props from the Trizwizard Tournament on display (March 30-September 23).

Throughout the Halloween season (September 28-November 11) visitors can discover the filmmaking secrets behind the wizarding world’s Dark Arts.

The Great Hall set will be decorated with more than 100 pumpkins suspended from the ceiling and visitors can try their wand combat moves against Death Eaters.

Hogwarts in the Snow (November 17-January 27, 2019) is the annual festive feature, which sees the Great Hall transformed for the Yule Ball, the Gryffindor common room dressed for the season and a blanket of filmmaking snow covering the Hogwarts castle model.
