Warner Bros Studio tour – the making of Harry Potter adds new permanent display #DarkArts

October 7, 2014 Off By Laura TMOT
On Tuesday 14th October  Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will be unveiling a new section devoted to the Dark Arts, encompassing Horcruxes and other sinister wizarding artefacts. The first, new permanent feature since opening in 2012. The current Malfoy Manor set will be expanded to show the headquarters of Lord Voldemort’s followers, the Death Eaters. You’ll be able to peer into the drawing room that features ornate chandeliers, an imposing fireplace and the long, grand table around which Bellatrix Lestrange, the Malfoy family, the Death Eaters and Voldemort schemed, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1.

The mannequin of Charity Burbage the captured Muggle Studies teacher will be suspended above the set, while a model of Nagini will sit on the table, which will be framed by the costumes of Peter Pettigrew and Severus Snape.

Officially launching on Tuesday 14th October, I will be there to show you all the fabulous features and some sneak peaks at the new section which will also include a variety of
never-before-seen artefacts and props from Borgin and Burkes. We will be
able to see these weird and wonderful props up close, including the mysterious Hand of
Glory and the Vanishing Cabinet.

To help celebrate the launch of the new permanent additions, the Studio Tour will also offer extra Dark Arts activities throughout the October half-term. From Friday 17th October – Monday 3rd November. For these two weeks only, visitors will be able to walk down a darker Diagon Alley as the lights are dimmed, the music becomes more foreboding and the wizarding shopping street set is patrolled by Death Eaters. Those who choose to take part, you can practise your duelling techniques in an interactive wand combat lesson.

This is a perfect opportunity for some Halloween Harry Potter fun so grab your tickets quick and be one of the first people to visit the new Dark Arts area of Warner Bros Studio Tour – the making of Harry Potter.
