It’s not even Halloween yet, but it’s never too early to think about Christmas!
This week, Warner Bros. Studio Tours in London announced they would be hosting the first-ever Christmas “Dinner in the Great Hall” on December 3.
That’s right! You too, a mere muggle, can have Christmas dinner at Hogwarts, just like Harry Potter did! Well, assuming you have £230.00 to spend on a ticket. Which is totally worth it, because magic!
Warner Bros. Tours says of the celebration, “The Hogwarts dining room will be dressed for the occasion with the original props used in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, including flaming Christmas puddings and hams studded with cherries. A wand will be waiting for you at your table and you’ll enjoy the first two courses of a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings on the authentic set (vegetarian option also available).”
Here’s the menu for the feast, which includes ham hock and broad bean terrine and roast turkey, stuffed with cranberry and sausage. Plus, Christmas pudding or cherry shortbread for dessert!
And here’s part of the itinerary for the evening:
7.00pm - Take your seat with other excited Harry Potter fans as you enjoy a two-course Christmas dinner in the set that hosted Hogwarts’ famous feasts.
8.45pm - Explore the remainder of the Studio Tour and enjoy a selection of puddings on Platform 9 ¾ as well as a cup of Butterbeer in the backlot café.
10.15pm - Return to the lobby for music and dancing.
If this all sounds too good to be true, it’s because there is some bad news: The dinner is already sold out. Warner Bros. Studio Tours says, “At present, there are no plans for further dates.”
While you might be feeling like this...
At least you could still visit during the extended “Hogwarts in the Snow”?
The experience runs from Nov. 13 to Jan. 31. “Iconic sets will be decorated as they were for festive scenes," the site says. "The Great Hall will be lined with eight Christmas trees, the Gryffindor common room will be dotted with sweet wrappers, crackers and oranges and, of course, the Hogwarts castle model will be covered in a blanket of filmmaking snow.”
That sounds nice too.
