If you're bored of house parties every Halloween and love Harry Potter, then we’ve found the ultimate experience for you. The Warner Bros Studio Tour is opening its doors again for Hogwarts After Dark, where guests can experience an extra special Halloween dinner in the Hogwart Great Hall, and there isn’t even any threat it being interrupted by a troll in the dungeon. Or Mrs Norris being petrified. Or being accidentally chosen as the fourth Triwizard champion.

The Great Hall will be decorated perfectly for Halloween

Guests will begin the experience with smoking dry ice cocktails and canapes (no word yet on whether house elves will be serving them), before entering the Great Hall complete with floating pumpkins, as seen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. You will then be served a Hogwarts feast-worthy two course dinner, before getting the chance to visit the studio tour after hours. For a truly spooky tour, you can see the Forbidden Forest (without the assistance of Hagrid) as well as the Gryffindor Common Room and Diagon Alley. But make sure you practise your Stunning charms, as Death Eaters will be roaming about.

You can also visit the prop-making department who will reveal some of the secrets from the films such as the enchanted pumpkins, and Wand Choreographer (dream job alert!) Paul Harris will be on hand to prepare you to duel. Just make sure you don’t ask him how to do an Unforgivable Curse.

The Hogwarts After Dark events will take place on the 26th, 27th, and 28th October, and tickets cost £240pp. They go on sale on Tuesday 28th August at 10am, so unless you’ve kept an illegal time turner, it’s best to set an alarm on your pocketwatch. It definitely beats those annual house parties where you either lose your novelty cat ears, spill drink down yourself because you tried to take a sip with novelty fangs, or have a bright orange face for the next week because pumpkin face paint is impossible to scrub off.
