Harry Potter and Halloween go together like Ben & Jerry's and a break-up. Whether you want to dress up like your favourite character for a night out, or watch the movies with the lights down, it just works.

Luckily for us, the Warner Bros Tour in London is running a spooky event for those who think they can take on the Death Eaters.


These two nights run alongside the Dark Arts event taking place throughout October and November.

The site reads: "The spooky evening will begin with smoking dry ice cocktails and canapés before stepping onto the red carpet through the doors of the wizarding school into the Great Hall, which will be transformed for Hallowe'en. The enchanted Great Hall ceiling will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, while the long tables will be laden with a Hallowe'en feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops."

So you could pretend you're at one of Slughorn's dinners...

It continues: "After taking your seats, you will enjoy a delicious two-course dinner and drinks surrounded by the original props and costumes. All before being greeted with lanterns and invited to follow the spiders into the Forbidden Forest set, where you will be able to enjoy your desserts in the company of magical creatures such as Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Aragog the Acromantula."

Throughout the evening, the Death Eaters will be walking around the tour dressed in the original costumes from the film series. How cool does that sound?!

Then, after you've had your dinner, you're free to explore the tour and the film sets.

You then get the chance to learn wand combat moves from Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, in preparation for a live duel with Death Eaters.


After a Butterbeer stop, Diagon Alley will be opening up with the lights dimmed, 'foreboding' music and the wizarding shopping street set will be patrolled by Death Eaters.
