Entering through the Great Hall doors, visitors will be greeted by a sea of green as the Slytherin house banners from the film series are suspended from the enchanted ceiling, denoting a Slytherin victory of the House Cup.

Known throughout the eight films for its ambition and links to dark magic, Slytherin house is home to some of the greatest wizards of all time.

 

This April, we’re inviting you to join us to discover the secrets behind some of the iconic costumes and props belonging to your favourite cunning Slytherin characters.

You won’t have to be under the guise of Polyjuice potion to discover the secrets of the Slytherin common room up close, as for the first time ever, you are invited to gather around the imposing fireplace and sofas where Ron’s magical transformation began to wear off, revealing his ginger hair. During this special feature, a 25-foot high section of this iconic set will be on display, furnished and dressed with authentic props. During filming, Production Designer Stuart Craig wanted a very different atmosphere to the warm colours of Gryffindor so designed the Slytherin common room set to look like a dungeon carved out of solid rock. You’ll be able to see the hand-crafted wall tapestries, which had the red tones completely taken out of the colour palette to add to the austere atmosphere and further highlight the iconic Slytherin colours, green and silver.

When stepping into the Great Hall, you’ll be greeted by a sea of green house banners from the film series are suspended from the enchanted ceiling, denoting a Slytherin victory of the House Cup. Above the teacher’s table, Gryffindor banners will be displayed in reference to the final scenes of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in which Dumbledore awards last-minute house points resulting in a Gryffindor triumph.

Paying homage to some of Slytherin’s most esteemed witches and wizards, a number of original costumes belonging to the Malfoy family will be on display allowing you to see how the designs changed to depict their rise and fall in power and status alongside Lord Voldemort. The evolution of Voldemort’s costumes showing his growth from orphan, Tom Riddle, to young Hogwarts student to prolific villain will also be showcased.

      For example:
      Once Hermione doubted that Dumbledore isn’t very loving towards house elfs but it was later on cleared by Dobby.

      What are your biggest plot holes and errors in Harry Potter that have always bothered you?


      For example:
      Moody puts Harry’s name in the GOF under a fourth school, so he’s the only competitor for that school and has to be chosen. However, the second Dumbledore read the slip of parchment with Harry’s name, he should have seen whatever fake school Harry was entered under.

      Even though owls are beautiful, I really am a cat person. I probably would have taken a cat to Hogwarts, spending my days off, evenings, and early mornings with them snuggled up.
       
      What about you? What kind of pet would you have taken to Hogwarts?

      This is a character that is easy to hate. He's spoiled, selfish, and is just an all around brat. However, I've been thinking about a bit. Was he really that way by nature or was he just acting that way because of how he was raised? Harry had been treated badly by his aunt and uncle from the start. Dudley,  being an impressionable youngster, saw this and decided that Harry was bad because of how the two adults he trusted the most acted towards Harry. They showered Dudley with love and gave into his every wish, even when he was throwing a tantrum so he saw them as loving parents. He was a violent bully, because his dad encouraged it either by modeling it with Harry or just using the whole "boys will be boys" argument. When you're spoiled it's probably hard to handle yourself rationally when being told "no," even by peers. 
       
      However, throughout the series, Dudley picks on Harry a little bit less. Like, a smidge each book. We don't see too much of him in the sixth book, but then in the last book he surprises everyone by telling Harry he's not a waste of space. Is it possible that as he grew up, he realized that how Harry had been treated was wrong? That maybe Dudley wasn't too bad of a person by nature, and that the only reason he was horrible when he was little was because that's what he was seeing at home?
       
      Just curious as to what your thoughts are. I'm not his biggest fan (or even at all), but it seems he matured.

      My first Lego review on YouTube since I couldn't find any detailed reviews about this set in English. I hope you like it! ⚡
