Bludgers And Broomsticks: It’s A Sporting Summer At Warner Bros. Studio Tour London
Wimbledon may be over, but you can still go sports-mad at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London! Broomsticks, hoops, bludgers and the Golden Snitch – it’s only a game of Quidditch! The fast-paced mythical sport was made famous in the Harry Potter series and on-screen we saw Harry whizz through the air on his broomstick as he tried to catch the Snitch and win the game. You don’t have to be an athlete to dive into the world of Quidditch this summer as the wizarding sport will be on show at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London! For a limited time only (Friday 18 July – Monday 1 September), visitors to the Studio Tour can learn how this exciting game was staged for the big screen.
The Bludgers and Broomsticks experience is included in the price of standard tickets to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London and fits in perfectly with the summer of sport we’ve seen so far. Make time for a visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London during the applicable period and you’ll see a special exhibition dedicated to magical sports and wizarding games.
Authentic Qudditch costumes and special effects revealed
There will be authentic costumes from Quidditch scenes on display and the rattling ball crate from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Discover how special and visual effects made Harry Potter cast members fly and chess pieces move – remember those animated and feisty pieces that came to life in a game of Wizard’s Chess?
Ride a broomstick!
During your visit to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, you will be able to pretend you’re soaring high above Hogwarts and test the green screen technology that allowed our favourite film characters to fly. Hop on the broomstick and let your imagination run wild as the experts film you with a dramatic Potter-esque background!
Meet a team of prop-makers
Pierre Bohanna was head prop-maker for the Harry Potter film series and his team will be on hand at the Studio Tour to demonstrate the techniques used to handcraft the broomsticks seen in the films. Take a look at how they made Harry’s first broomstick and his top of the range Nimbus 2000!
