Get into the festive spirit as our annual Hogwarts in the Snow feature returns with more snow than ever!
For the very first time, you’re invited to explore another of your favourite sets in the snow as Diagon Alley undergoes a wintery transformation.
New for 2020, the cobbled stones and magical shop fronts of Diagon Alley will be given a festive makeover, draped in layers of filmmaking snow. During production, 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. Using the same techniques, filmmakers will 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.
