Harry Potter fans can count Christmas officially here as Warner Bros has just announced the reopening of its magical event, Hogwarts in the Snow - this time with a brand new amazing set for guests to feast their eyes on.
The yearly spectacle, which takes place at the Warner Bros Studio Tour, sees the studios undergo a wintery transformation to emulate Hogwarts at Christmas time.
Past years have let lucky guests explore the likes of the Great Hall and the Gryffindor common room complete with festive makeovers, but now for the first time, fans will be able to meander down Diagon Alley in all its snow-capped glory.
New for 2020, the cobbled stones and magical shop fronts of Diagon Alley will be given a magical festive makeover, draped in layers of filmmaking snow.
Warner Bros explain: "During filming, many different types of 'snow' were used, each selected for its ability to crunch under foot, float like falling flakes or glisten in the light like ice, but never melt. The same techniques will be used by filmmakers to cover the magical shopping street this year.
"Though Diagon Alley was not seen in the snow, the same set was used for parts of Hogsmeade during the wintery scenes that see Harry make use of his invisibility cloak to join the school trip without permission."
While there's no sneak peak pics yet (well, they wouldn't want to ruin the surprise), we can only image how magical this will be!
Returning this year is the Hogwarts Castle model (transformed with a dusting of snow) as well as the Great Hall where guests will be greeted with wreaths, garlands and trees topped with witches on miniature broomsticks.
Really setting the scene, the long dining tables will be dressed as they were for the Christmas feast in Philosopher's Stone, complete with special effects flaming Christmas puddings and prop versions of the hams studded with cherries and simply mouth-watering roast turkeys.
If only they were real!
After, guests will be able to walk around the Gryffindor Common Room and Boys' Dormitory, which will be decorated with original props from the movies, including homemade Christmas cards - some of which were made by the actual cast members during production.
Hogwarts in the Snow runs from Saturday 14th November to Sunday 17th January 2021 with tickets costing £47 for an adult, £38 for a child and £150 for a family of two adults and two children OR one adult and three children.
Tickets for Hogwarts in the Snow can by purchased online now.
