VisitEngland has declared 2017 the ‘Year of Literary Heroes’, with the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen, the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter, and the 75th anniversary of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five to name a few literary landmarks in the calendar. It’s a big year for the world’s biggest stories and the Georgian House simply can’t wait to celebrate.
It’s been 15 years since the release of the first movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Feel old yet? As hard as it is to believe that it’s been so long since Harry, Ron and Hermione met on the Hogwarts Express with no idea what adventures were ahead of them, Warner Brothers are not letting the anniversary go unnoticed. The Studio Tour based in Leavesden is not only celebrating the notable event, but also preparing for the winter season with all your favourite festivities and themed activities alongside hosting special screenings of the newly released film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Here’s what they’re getting up to this season!
