Inside Warner Bros' Hogwarts Christmas dinner that costs £260 for two meals – and fans aren't impressed | The Sun

November 30, 2022

HARRY Potter fans have slammed Warner Bros' Hogwarts Christmas dinner after realising they charge £260.

The annual event inside the Great Hall has left lovers of the franchise disappointed after seeing the steep price.


Branding the festive spread as only being available for "wealthy fans", many have said it's "a joke".

Warner Bros Studio Tours put the experience on every year at their Watford studios for those wanting to dine like Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Based in the iconic hall from the films, the trio once found out their school houses in there, had multiple feasts and saw a frog performing choir.

However in an attempt to bring the magic to life, it would cost an eye-watering £260 each.

One fan said: “Would be amazing but £500 for two people means it’s only for the wealthy Harry Potter fans!”

Meanwhile another added: “Shame it costs so much!

“£500 is a joke.”

Amid the cost of living crisis, one shocked fan said: “£520 for two to go for a meal in the present situation, I think not.”

However some were excited by the idea with one person saying: "I would love to do this!"

While another, who has booked tickets, said: "Tickets booked! Can't wait, had a blast at the Dark Arts dinner too."

Someone who attended last year said: "We did Christmas dinner in the Great Hall, the whole night was fantastic!

"A night we will always remember."

Warner Bros, which is worth £22.8 billion, is hosting the event between December 13 and 15.

Despite the uproar of pricing, all 200 tickets for each night have sold out.

Guests will be served pressed ham hock and pea terrine with lettuce and bread or a beetroot, pomegranate and feta quinoa as their starter.

The two mains on offer are a festive turkey roast or a butternut squash and lentil wellington.

A description of the night reads: “Dine as the students of Hogwarts did, as our popular Dinner in the Great Hall events return for another magical year.

“Each night, you are invited for a drinks reception under the imposing Dragon in the Studio Tour’s lobby before moving through to the magnificent Great Hall for a mouth-watering two-course seated dinner.
