Dark Arts returns for the Hallowe’en season. Fans of Death Eaters, daring duels and Hallowe'en feasts are invited to explore the darkness of the Wizarding World.
Returning this year, the iconic Great Hall set will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, as seen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Created by Head Propmaker on all the Harry Potter films, Pierre Bohanna, the pumpkins 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.
Brush up on your wand moves in an exciting live duel with Death Eaters. Demonstrating how a crowd scene like the Battle of Hogwarts would have been created during filming, you will test out their defensive wand techniques as they are directed through a battle with Death Eaters.
In addition to this, vats of slimy troll snot, buckets of dribbling 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 created.
New for 2019
This year’s feature focusses on the loyal followers of the Dark Lord, the Death Eaters. From concept art to the finished props, members of the Harry Potter Art Department will be on hand to demonstrate the pain-staking process behind the intricate Death Eater masks seen in the films. During production, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named’s followers each wore a unique mask that was designed and hand-etched to reflect their personality. The original Death Eater masks and costumes from the film series will be on display allowing visitors to see up close the elaborate detail.
