If you're totally over autumn already and are planning Christmas shenanigans ahead of schedule, it's time to start saving for an experience that will definitely top your last trip to the local pub with your family.

For the fourth year in a row, Harry Potter fans around the country can enjoy an actual Christmas feast inside The Great Hall, as part of Warner Bros. Studio Tour's magical makeover into Hogwarts in the Snow.

From 16th November until Sunday 26th January 2020, visitors will be able to step into a Harry Potter-themed winter wonderland, and for the first time ever, the Great Hall stage will be decorated as it was for the iconic Yule Ball, with snow-covered Christmas trees, icicles and an orchestra of magical instruments.

Is that the dream, or is that the dream?

The Gryffindor common room, the Weasley burrow and the infamous Hogwarts castle model will also be transformed for the festive season, and original props such as handmade Christmas cards, some of which were created by the cast members during production, will be on display.

But that's not even the best bit! Warner Bros. Studio will see the return of the highly anticipated ‘Dinner in the Great Hall’ - and any Harry Potter fan will want to get in on this. On 9th-1th December, lucky fans can enjoy drinks and canapes before sitting down to a two-course Christmas feast, and then be unleashed on a tour of the studio after-hours, where dessert will be served on Platform 9 3/4s.

(To be honest, we'd probably like that bit the most considering it wouldn't be filled with kids that we're supposed to let steal all the good viewing spots.)

The ticket price - which isn't cheap at £240 per person - includes a two-course dinner, canapés, drinks, and obviously, some Butterbeer.

The evening ends with some drinks and dancing, and we can only hope Professor McGonagall will be teaching you those Yule Ball ~moves~.

Considering we're skint, however, we'll probably just put on our finest Gryffindor robe (which handily doubles as our dressing gown) and scoff some Mini Rolls during a Harry Potter movie marathon. But still, if we had the money, we'd be all over this.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on 17th September - and we recommend you get in there sharpish if you've got your heart set on celebrating Christmas at Hogwarts. These won't last long.
