Christmas in the Wizarding World with ‘Hogwarts in the Snow’ in London

Celebrate Christmas in the Wizarding World

 You can now experience Christmas in the Wizarding World! Hogarts in the Snow is returning to the Studio Tour in London Saturday, November 16th, 2019 to Sunday, January 26th, 2020. 

The festive celebration will begin in the famous Great Hall which will be decorated with Christmas trees trimmed with golden baubles and witches on broomsticks. The well-known dining tables will adorned with the seasonal feasts just as they were at Hogwarts. Christmas puddings and real flames included! The stage will be a mirror image of how it was for the iconic Yule Ball scene from “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”. You will also get to set your sights on the snow-covered Christmas trees, icicles, and the orchestra of magical instruments. 

Learn how filmmakers created a magical snow that never melts and flames without fire. You will get to feel the different types of “movie snow”. One that floats like falling snowflakes and one that crunches when you step on it like ice. As you travel around the Studio Tour, look out for burning fireplaces and learn how fire was created for the “Harry Potter” films. Here’s a hint: water vapor and lighting effects are involved! 

Lastly, during Hogwarts in the Snow, many of the famous sets will get a holiday makeover. The Weasley kitchen will be decked with Christmas crackers and a festive feast. The Gryffindor common room and the Boys’ dormitory will be decorated with original props from the film series.  

A model of the Hogwarts Castle will be set in a winter wonderland. During the filming process, a member of the crew hand-sprinkled a mixture of granulated paper and grains of salt onto the model with a sieve. This helped achieve the perfect “fresh snow” look.

Ticket prices are £45.00 per adult, £37.00 per child, and £148.00 per family (2 adults, 2 children or 1 adult, 3 children).

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to celebrate Christmas in the Wizarding World?
