After the success of last years event Dark Arts will return to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London for Halloween 2018. From the 28th of September to the 10th of November fans of the Harry Potter Franchise are invited to experience a special exhibit dedicated to the Dark Arts.

The iconic Great Hall will be decorated 100’s of floating pumpkins just like in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Created by Head Propmaker, Pierre Bohanna, the pumpkins are modelled on those found in Hagrid’s pumpkin patch in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and are hand-carved by the Prop Making Department so no two are alike. The Great Hall tables will also be laden with a Hallowe’en feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops.

After learning wand combat moves in an interactive experience with Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, you are invited to take part in an exciting live duel with Death Eaters in the Studio’s backlot. Demonstrating how a crowd scene like the Battle of Hogwarts would have been created during filming, you will test out your newly learned wand techniques as you are directed through a battle with Death Eaters who are storming the Hogwarts Bridge.

As part of the feature, the original Death Eater costumes from the Harry Potter film series will be on display allowing you to see the intricate details of the embroidered robes and hand-painted masks. During production, the Death Eater’s each wore a unique mask. Each were handmade to reflect their personality.

In addition to this, vats of Troll snot, buckets of drool (of the three-headed dog variety) and pools of silvery unicorn blood will be showcased in the Tour allowing you to get hands-on and see exactly how the slime and goo was made.
