Harry Potter Studios - Hogwarts in the Snow

Glossop Road entrance to Bar One • 9 December, 9am - 6pm

This winter, fires will be ‘lit’, baubles will be hung and snow will fall at Hogwarts in the Snow. Iconic sets will be decorated as they were for festive scenes; the Great Hall will be lined with eight Christmas trees, the Gryffindor common room will be dotted with sweet wrappers, crackers and oranges and, of course, the Hogwarts castle model will be covered in a blanket of filmmaking snow. You’ll discover how artificial flakes and special effects fire are created and – in the case of the Great Hall’s plum puddings – how real flames are controlled on set! Also this year, experience the magnificent Forbidden Forest! The Forbidden Forest may be strictly off-limits to Hogwarts students, but for the first time you are invited to defy Professor Dumbledore’s orders and follow the footsteps of Harry, Ron and Hermione deep into the grounds of the Forbidden Forest.

The trip will run with an 9am departure from the Glossop Road entrance to Bar One. You have free time to explore The Studio and Studio Shop at your own pace, but our access time to The Studios itself is 2.30pm. You will then be expected to be at the meeting point at the end of the day at 6pm, so we can travel back to Sheffield.

 

What's included with my ticket?

Your ticket is great value for money and includes all coach transport to and from The Studios, plus entry to The Studio and Studio Shop. Ticket into the Studio is RRP: £41 (not including travel) If you were to get public transport to the Studios, with a travel card, it would cost you £52.75. Therefore with Give it a Go you save £23.75 per person! With Give it a Go you get return private coach travel and entry to the Studios for only £70. You're free to explore the Studios in your own time and at your own pace. We will give you an itinerary and map when you are on the coach so you can plan your day accordingly.

Team Give it a Go will be with you, but you will be left to your own devices for the day.

 

Instructions for Ticket Holders

  • Get to the pickup location as stated on your ticket at 7.45am for a 8am departure.
  • Have your ticket ready for inspection. If you bought your ticket online, please try to remember to pick up your physical ticket from the Box Office as we currently don’t do QR scanning for Give it a Go activities.

  • Be advised that the coaches will be leaving promptly at the coach pick up point at 6pm.

N.B. Our coaches will not wait for you if you are late. They will leave in the morning at the pick-up point at 9am, and again the departure point on time. If you miss the return coach, you will have to utilise public transport options to return to Sheffield.

 

What do I need to bring?

It is very important that you bring your ticket to show that you had paid for the trip.

We would also advise all students/explorers be prepared and bring the following:

  • Appropriate clothing for the weather on the day. A coat, umbrella, hat, scarf and gloves would probably be smart.
  • Any spending money you want
  • A rucksack
  • A bottle of water

We would also advise you to bring a small packed lunch, even if you plan on buying food when you get there.
