If, like me, you love Hallowe'en and Harry Potter - your dreams are about to come true.

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour is holding a Dark Arts event all over Hallowe'en and it's GOING OFF.

Are you a secret Slytherin? Or a bit of a goth? I will proudly admit that I'm both of these and I'm already looking into buying tickets for this event as we speak.


The event runs from Sunday 1st October - Sunday 12th November, and the website says: "Fans of Death Eaters, daring duels and Hallowe'en feasts are invited to delve deeper than ever before into the Dark Arts as we host a special feature dedicated to the darker side of the Harry Potter film series."

The event is new for 2017, and the iconic Great Hall set will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins.

The website explains that the pumpkins have been created by Head Propmaker on all the Harry Potter films, Pierre Bohanna, the pumpkins are modelled on those found in Hagrid's pumpkin patch in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and are "hand-carved by the Prop Making Department so no two are alike".

It doesn't stop there, as the Great Hall tables will also be laden with a Hallowe'en feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops.

If you're wondering if it's just a load of decorations, wonder no more. They explain: "After learning wand combat moves in an interactive experience with Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, you are invited to take part in an exciting live duel with Death Eaters in the Studio Tour's backlot. Demonstrating how a crowd scene like the Battle of Hogwarts would have been created during filming, you will test out your newly learned wand techniques as you are directed through a battle with Death Eaters who are storming the Hogwarts Bridge."

As you've probably heard, as of March a new part of the tour opened up - The Forbidden Forest...

But anyway, back to the Hallowe'en event. The original Death Eater costumes from the film series will also be on display, which means that you get to see the intricate details of the embroidered robes and hand-painted masks.

They conclude: "During production, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's followers each wore a unique mask, handmade by the Prop Making Department that was designed to reflect their personality."

To make things even better, all the extra activities are included in the ticket price, which you can buy here.
