What's On

Dark Arts

Discover how the Dark Arts were brought to life on screen this October half-term.

Dark Arts

Friday 17th October – Monday 3rd November

To celebrate the launch of our new permanent Dark Arts section, we’re also offering extra Dark Arts activities throughout the October half-term!

Did You Know?

Unlike the Great Hall set, the interior of Malfoy Manor had a ceiling during filming, which was needed because several stunts took place at the top of the room – Voldemort’s suspension of Charity Burbage and a falling chandelier!

For two weeks only, a section of the Hallowe’en feast from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone will be on display in Hogwarts’ Great Hall.

You’ll also be able to walk down a darker Diagon Alley as the lights are dimmed, the music becomes more foreboding and the wizarding shopping street set is patrolled by Death Eaters. Those who choose to take part in an interactive wand combat lesson can practise their duelling techniques.

Each Death Eater has a unique mask featuring their own particular design or motif, so they could be personally identified.

Helena Bonham Carter wore fake rotten teeth and nails that were long and gnarled whilst playing Bellatrix Lestrange.

The Dark Mark symbol, which appears on the arms of Voldemort's Death Eaters, was created through a combination of prosthetic makeup and visual effects.

Hogwarts In The Snow

Friday 14th November – Sunday 1st February 2015

Did You Know?

The food featured in the feasts throughout the early films was real; however, the Set Decoration department later used artificial food created from powder and resin.

The most magical seasonal makeover of the year will take place at the Studio Tour this November as the Great Hall is filled with the actual decorations and food props used in the most successful film series of all time.

You'll get the chance to see first-hand how the vast Christmas feasts were created and how sets were transformed for festive scenes.

The breathtaking Hogwarts castle model will also be given a festive makeover as it will be covered in a blanket of snow.

More than 130 Hogwarts Christmas crackers were created, these were designed by the Graphics Department and feature the house colours and crests.

The artificial snow used on the Hogwarts castle model throughout the Harry Potter film series was actually dendritic salt.

Model Effects Supervisor Jose Granell will sprinkle snow on to the model using a sieve – like dusting sugar onto a cake.

One of our staff members, Shelley, previously worked as a Costume Maker and helped create Luna Lovegood's dress for the Slug Club Christmas party.

The Weasley kitchen set will also undergo a seasonal transformation, decorated as though the family had just finished Christmas dinner.
