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.
