On Tuesday, December 3rd, a special Christmas party was held at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter to celebrate the launch of Wizarding World Gold.

Fans enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime experience with dinner in the authentic Great Hall set and Wizarding games on Platform 9 ¾ with surprise guest host, Warwick Davis. The Wizarding World Gold Christmas Party is the first in a series of exclusive events for Gold Subscribers, with more to be announced in 2020. 

Gold subscribers who snapped up the tickets earlier this month through the new Wizarding World app were welcomed with a drinks reception that took place next to an enchanting installation of the re-imagined Sorting hat which floated in front of them, in situ for one night only.

The atmosphere peaked when host for the evening, actor Warwick Davis, who portrayed Professor Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter films, turned up to surprise the guests at the start of the evening, leading fans through to the truly magical Great Hall set, decorated as it was for the iconic Yule Ball in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Guests enjoyed a two-course Christmas feast – which at one point was interrupted by Death Eaters who skulked through the room.

Guests also watched as an artist brought their visions of ‘Christmas in the Wizarding World’ to life on a mural next to the original Hogwarts Express locomotive and played games such as ‘Wizarding Mr & Mrs’ hosted by Warwick Davis himself. 

Fans went on to explore the Studio Tour after hours, discovering the filmmaking secrets behind Christmas in the Wizarding World with a tankard of Butterbeer, before dancing the night away on a starlit dancefloor under the gaze of a giant model of a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon suspended above.

Wizarding World Gold is the spellbinding annual subscription that offers fans the opportunity to enhance their free Official Harry Potter Fan Club experience, offering a host of exciting benefits such as: personalized welcome gifts, exclusive content, access to all 7 Harry Potter eBooks, collectible pin badges, exclusive discounts, early access, priority booking and the chance to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as the Wizarding World Gold Christmas party.
