I'm not even a huge Harry Potter fan, but this is pretty freakin' cool.
According to Mashable, fans of J.K. Rowling's wizarding world as it appeared in the movies have the awesome opportunity to eat Christmas dinner in Hogwarts' Great Hall this year. For the first time ever, the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London is opening its doors from 6pm to midnight on December 3rd, 2015 for a one-night-only event in which fans will eat a two course meal on the actual set where they filmed the movie before exploring the rest of the studio.
As expected, it's a bit on the expensive side: it'll cost you about $350 per person. But it sounds like it'll be worth it for diehard Potter maniacs. You can get your tickets right here if you're interested. The official site has a cool breakdown of what the experience will be like:
The Hogwarts dining room will be dressed for the occasion with the original props used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, including flaming Christmas puddings and hams studded with cherries. A wand will be waiting for you at your table and you’ll enjoy the first two courses of a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings on the authentic set (vegetarian option also available).
After dinner, you’ll be able to:
Explore the Studio Tour, admiring sets such as the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley’s kitchen at The Burrrow, which will also be dressed as they were for winter scenes.
Enjoy a selection of three festive dessert bowls on Platform 9 ¾, alongside the original Hogwarts Express.
Drink Butterbeer in the backlot café and walk up the wizarding shopping street, Diagon Alley, before taking in the breathtaking Hogwarts castle model (covered in a layer of filmmaking snow especially for the festive season).
Finish the evening with music and dancing, with a bar provided for those who wish to purchase additional drinks.
If anyone ends up going to this, let us know how it is!
