Tricks on you & treats on the lucky Harry Potter fans who had a wizarding two-course dinner at Hogwarts on Halloween.

While you were stuffing your face with leftover chocolates on Halloween and watching some second-rate ‘scary’ movie like Blair Witch 2, there were hundreds of Potterheads feeling the All Hallows Eve magic at Warner Bros Studio London aka the home of Hogwarts.

Every year, the studio puts on a one-of-a-kind, adults-only Halloween event called ‘Hogwarts After Dark’, during which fans are invited to the studio for a spooky, after-hours experience.

This year’s magical evening was no exception in the ‘wicked’ department and may actually have been the best yet, as Death Eaters roamed the Tour in actual costumes from the films.

The Great Hall was completely transformed to reflect the special occasion with 100 floating pumpkins and long tables laden with red apples, pumpkins, and meals ranging from Autumn squash and apple risotto to Forest mushrooms with vegetables.

Dessert was served in the Forbidden Forest in the company of Buckbeak the Hippogriff and Aragog the Acromantula, followed by wand combat lessons from Wand Choregeopher, Paul Harris.

Meanwhile, in Diagon Alley, the lights were dimmed to present a creepier version of the popular shopping location.

Unfortunately, ‘Hogwarts After Dark’ has wrapped up for another year but will surely be back for another chilling year in 2020.

Keep an eye out on Warner Bros Studios Tours London’s website for information in the new year.
