If it has always been your dream to protect Hogwarts castle, duel with Death Eaters and eat dessert in the Forbidden Forest, get excited because your moment to shine is around the corner.

The Warner Brothers Studio Tour, which contains the Harry Potter film sets and original costumes, is hosting three nights of Halloween dinners in October, at which guests will be able to dine in the Great Hall of Hogwarts Castle and learn to cast spells.

The evening starts off with a two-course dinner—with wine pairings—of smoked duck with pumpkin purée and blood orange jelly, followed by roasted lamb with black rice risotto and wild mushrooms (vegetarian and vegan options are also available). Dessert will be served (pumpkin brûlé, black cherry tart, chocolate mousse) in the Forbidden Forest before Butterbeer is offered in the café.

The program for the evening is deeply interactive, with demos and appearances from film professionals. Attendees will meet with members of the prop department, who will explain how over 100 uniquely-carved pumpkins came to be hanging from the ceiling. Wand choreographer Paul Harris will teach wand motions and prepare diners for a duel with Death Eaters on the iconic bridge, so start practicing your stupefy!

Tickets for the dinners—which will take place in the evenings of October 26th to 28th—go on-sale on August 28th for £240 ($308) per person.
