We have visited the Warner Bros Studio Tour in London in London a couple of times but there always seems to be something new to see. This year the new arrival was the incredible looking Gringotts and 2020 looks just as exciting. Here are the main events so you can plan when to visit in 2020 – just remember to book your tickets early as they do sell out really quickly. Why not buy tickets as a Christmas present? I’m sure any Harry Potter fan would love them – hint hint!
Introducing the Art Department
From February 14 to February 24, the Studio Tour will be hosting an Introducing the Art Department event. Potter fans will be able to discover the secrets behind a range of props, including wand-making demonstrations from the filmmakers themselves. Visitors will also be able to view the technical drawings and concept art behind a number of iconic Potter props.
A Celebration of Slytherin
For five months next year, the Studio Tour will be celebrating all things Slytherin. From April to August, the Great Hall will be dressed in green, with banners suspended from the ceiling and a grand feast, re-creating the designs used to celebrate the House Cup. More details are yet to come, but A Celebration of Slytherin is set to feature costumes and props from some of Slytherin House’s most memorable members.
2020 will also see the return of fan-favorite events, including Dark Arts and Hogwarts in the Snow.
The Darker Side of Magic
From Friday, September 25 to Sunday, November 8, the Studio Tour will celebrate the darker side of magic with a Halloween feast, floating pumpkins, and wand combat workshops. These demonstrations will feature “real” Death Eaters to show visitors exactly how battle scenes in the movies were developed.
Harry Potter in the Snow
Less than a week later, Hogwarts in the Snow will bring the holiday cheer to Leavesden. From November 14 to January 17, the Great Hall will once again be dressed to look like the Yule Ball, and the Hogwarts Castle model will be dusted in snow. Visitors will also get to discover the magic behind creating snow on-screen and get up close and personal with different types of snow.
