The Harry Potter Studio Tour has announced a five month celebration of all things Slytherin

Whether it's Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor or Slytherin, every Harry Potter fan has their house.

And for those who identify with the ambitious, shrewd and cunning witches and wizards of Slytherin, we've got some good news: there's a five month celebration of Slytherin happening this year.

Yes, London's Harry Potter Studio Tour will be shining a spotlight on all things Slytherin related from April 3 until September 6.

Known throughout the eight films for its ambition and links to dark magic, Slytherin house is home to some of the greatest wizards of all time.

And for that five month period, fans can discover the secrets behind some of the iconic costumes and props belonging to their favourite cunning Slytherin characters.

For the first time ever, you can explore the Slytherin Common Room up close - and gather around the imposing fireplace and sofas where Ron’s magical transformation began to wear off, revealing his ginger hair.

A 25-foot high section of the Slytherin Common Room set will be on display, furnished and dressed with authentic props.

During filming, Production Designer Stuart Craig wanted a very different atmosphere to the warm colours of Gryffindor so designed the Slytherin common room set to look like a dungeon carved out of solid rock.

The Great Hall will be filled with a sea of green house banners from the film, showing a Slytherin victory of the House Cup.

Above the teacher’s table, Gryffindor banners will be displayed in reference to the final scenes of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in which Dumbledore awards last-minute house points resulting in a Gryffindor triumph.

Paying homage to some of Slytherin’s most esteemed witches and wizards, a number of original costumes belonging to the Malfoy family will be on display allowing you to see how the designs changed to depict their rise and fall in power and status alongside Lord Voldemort.

The evolution of Voldemort’s costumes showing his growth from orphan, Tom Riddle, to young Hogwarts student to prolific villain will also be showcased.

Tickets to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour - which includes the Celebration of Slytherin - must be pre-booked in advance. You can find out more information here.
