Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to the VIP launch event for Hogwarts In The Snow at Warner Bros. Studio Tour. Christmas is my favourite holiday of the year and I can’t think of any better way to get in the festive spirit than with a visit to Leavesden Studios.
It marked my 5th visit to the tour, and it was no less magical than the first time I stepped through the doors. The sets looked magnificent decked out (pun intended) in Christmas trees, flaming Christmas puddings, and decorations galore.
As far as VIP events go, this was fantastic! We were offered blue smoking cocktails in the foyer, followed by drinks and canapés in the Great Hall and on Platform 9 3/4, in the presence of singer Rod Stewart, magician Dynamo, ‘Great British Bake Off’ winner Naydia, YouTubers Evan Edinger and Dodie Clark, EastEnders actor Jake Wood, and most importantly, McFly and McBusted frontman Tom Fletcher, amongst others.
The one thing I love most about these events is meeting up with Potter friends from all over the UK, and having an amazing time geeking out.
One of the undisputed highlights of the tour is the huge scale model of Hogwarts, which looks even more breathtaking when covered in snow.
As “always”, I had a truly magical time!
