Dementors descend on Hogwarts this Halloween as ‘Dark Arts’ returns to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter

This year, the Dark Arts will be even darker as Dementors and Death Eaters appear throughout Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter from 13th September to 10th November 2024 as the Studio Tour’s popular Halloween feature returns with brand new additions.

For the first time ever, Dementors will appear unexpectedly in The Forbidden Forest and fans will be able to banish them with The Patronus Charm, just like Harry Potter did in the films. In the Creatures Workshop, visitors can learn more about the creation of Dementors by taking part in an interactive demonstration of the moulding process that is used to make these evil apparitions.

Back by popular demand, the iconic Great Hall set will once again have over 100 pumpkins magically floating above the Hogwarts house tables, with each Jack-o-Lantern’s expression uniquely carved by The Prop Making Department. The Great Hall’s tables will be adorned with a festive Halloween feast of lollipops and red apples and the ghosts of Hogwarts will make an eerie appearance.

The fan favourite Death Eater procession will return to various parts of the Studio Tour when guests least expect it. Visitors are advised to beware as the loyal followers of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named will stalk through the iconic sets during the Dark Arts feature. During this takeover, they will demonstrate the menacing wand choreography developed by Paul Harris who devised the wand combat scenes in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  

Furthermore, aspiring witches and wizards will get the chance to learn the duelling technique in The Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, as they come face to face with Death Eaters and put their wand skills to the test.

Visitors will see the symbol of Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters throughout the Studio Tour. Courageous guests are encouraged to find and follow the Dark Mark using the hints in the Studio Tour’s popular activity passport, which will be redesigned for this feature.

The Studio Tour’s Dark Arts feature will run from 13th September – 10th November 2024. Tickets must be pre-booked, and all Dark Arts additions are included in the ticket price. For more information, please visit:
