The Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery mobile game has announced a new in-game activity for the holidays – visiting the Weasley’s for Christmas! You’ll be able to spend the holidays with the Weasley family and travel to the Burrow in the flying car for the Christmas adventure.

Spend the holidays at the Burrow with the Weasley family in an all-new adventure starting December 19 in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery
 
Players will head to the Weasley’s home in the flying car – but not before a blizzard hits, threatening to derail the festivities.

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Christmas Party Celebrates Launch of Wizarding World Gold
Posted by Megs

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.

Add Some Magic to Your Holiday Season with Harry Potter Christmas Sweaters
Posted by Megs

The holidays are fast approaching and Merchoid has released its Officially licensed Harry Potter Christmas sweaters to get you into the festive spirit for 2019! The range includes House designs, replicas of the Weasley Sweaters and more!

Note: The sweaters and other products are on sale for Black Friday, scoop them up at great prices now!

Direct from Diagon Alley comes this year’s Hogwarts offerings! Naturally, each house has been represented to the highest standard. Along with the highly sought after house garments, you can now show your school spirit with the exclusively designed Hogwarts For The Holidays jumper, expressing the desire of many Wizards, Witches and Muggles who wish to eat their Christmas dinner in The Great Hall.

But that’s not all. The Merchoid House Elves have been busy, under the watchful eye of Mrs Weasley, to ensure that everyone can experience a little bit of Weasley Warmth this festive season with the iconic ‘H’ and ‘R’ jumpers. Now you can feel like one of the Weasley family.

The full range of Harry Potter Christmas Jumpers – as well as many other fandom-themed sweaters – are available to order on Merchoid’s website. And don’t forget to check out the rest of their Harry Potter collection!

Merchoid was kind enough to send us a couple of sweaters to test out and we are happy to tell you they’re great quality! Sometimes with these types of products, they fall victim to looks over quality but in this case, they look and feel great. I’m sure after a wash or two they will get even softer, always a plus.

The Harry Potter: I’d Rather Stay at Hogwarts Christmas Sweater is perfect for the fan who has a love of all the houses. You get a beautiful outline of Hogwarts castle along with all the house animals in a festive pattern.

This is a house of Ravenclaws, so when it came to choosing our house sweater the choice was easy – The Ravenclaw Knitted Christmas Sweater! It will be a fight for who gets to wear this gray and blue sweater, luckily we can share.

NOTE: If you are outside the UK shipping will be a bit slow, they estimate 10-15 days so be sure to order quickly if you want optimal wearing time for this year!

View more detail shots of the sweaters over on our Facebook!
