Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Dark Arts - Friday 28th September 2018 – Saturday 10th November 2018

Throughout the Hallowe’en season, fans of Death Eaters, daring duels and Hallowe'en feasts are invited to explore the darkness of the Wizarding World as we host a special feature dedicated to the Dark Arts.


Returning this year, the iconic Great Hall set will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, just as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Created by Head Propmaker on all the Harry Potter films, 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 Tour’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 film series will be on display allowing you to see up close the intricate details of the embroidered robes and hand-painted masks. During production, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's followers each wore a unique mask, handmade by the Prop Making Department that was designed to reflect their personality.


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. You will also be able to walk down a darker Diagon Alley as the lights are dimmed and the music becomes more foreboding on the wizarding shopping street.

Dark Arts will run from Friday 28th September 2018 – Saturday 10th November 2018. Tickets must be pre-booked and all extra features are included in the ticket price.

      I was Tweeted at today and asked; ' who are Hogwarts’ English and maths teachers? As far as I can tell, they never get taught the basics, so where do they learn them?'
          This made me wonder if children who attend or graduate from Hogwarts have an education that can be used in the Muggle world? Do students learn English and Maths?

      As Tweeted here:
      With some research we can see that Arithmancy is taught but that's the study of the magical properties of numbers, not maths.
      How do younger wizards and witches get educated in basic skills like reading and writing?
      We see very little of this in the books, although obviously the kids entering Hogwarts have been trained in some of these basic skills or they wouldn’t be able to handle the classes the face at Hogwarts. Given the very medieval nature of the wizarding world, I suggest that most kids are trained either by their parents in basic reading, writing, and math, or are trained in small one-room schools with a relatively few children and one teacher. This training would cover the basics and enough pre-magic theory to produce kids who can function in wizarding society.  
      Currently taught at Hogwarts
      Herbology = Botany/Gardening Care of Magical Creatures = Zoology/Veterinary Science Arithmancy = Arithmetic/Mathematics Potions = Chemistry/Cookery/Pharmacology Astronomy = (Astro)physics/Mathematics/Geography (of the Heavens) Charms = Latin/Drama/Kinetics DADA = Physical Education/Chemistry/Physics Divination = Mathematics/Psychology/Philosophy/Lunacy Ancient Runes = History/Logic/Mathematics/Linguistics Transfiguration = Physics/Biology (bioenergetics)/Physical Education History of Magic = History/Tolerance (of boredom) Flying = Physical Education/Driving Lessons Muggle Studies = History/Sociology/Technology etc.  
      I'm very interested if anyone does know or has their own ideas on the matter. We'd love to hear your comments.
