Wizards Rejoice! You Can Have Christmas Dinner at Hogwarts
No Muggle will be able to experience the Christmas feast Hogwarts students indulged in each holiday, but soon you might be able to do the next best thing: This December 3, a lucky few aspiring witches and wizards will be able to dine at the legendary Great Hall at Warner Bros.' Leavesden, UK studios. This means fans will be able to sit on the very same benches as the likes of Daniel Radcliffe and Matthew Lewis.
When the event starts at 6 p.m., guests will arrive on a shuttle train and be offered drinks and canapés before finding their seats in the dining hall decked out in original props used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, like the flaming Christmas pudding and ham studded with cherries. There, the attendees will enjoy a two-course meal, packed with entrees like roast turkey, ham hock, and confit pear.
After dinner, the wizard-wannabes can take a stroll around the set and enjoy festive dessert bowls on Platform 9 ¾ and a cup of Butterbeer at the cafe. The evening then concludes with some dancing, and guests are sent home with a magical parting gift: a wand from the Hogwarts student of their choosing (some options are Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Professor Dumbledore, and Lord Voldemort).
While this sounds like any Harry Potter fan's dream, tickets are limited—and not cheap. You can read more information and book your tickets here for £230 ($349).
