Step into Hogwarts with Butterbeer and all.

We don't know about you, but nothing says 'Christmas' like sitting in the lounge on a blistering cold December evening, turning on ITV2 and seeing that one of the Harry Potter films just about to start.

But what if we told you that instead of watching Harry, Hermoine, Ron and the gang drink up on Butterbeer and enjoy an endless feast of roast turkey and chocolate puddings, you could bag your very own ticket to the Triwizard Tournament Yule Ball?

This Christmas, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London is transforming the Great Hall into the ultimate Yule Ball experience, decorated with snow-covered Christmas trees, icicles and filled with an orchestra of magical instruments.

On arrival, guests will be treated to welcome drinks and canapés before stepping through the doors of the wizarding school into the Great Hall and taking their seats on the actual Great Hall set used during filming.

Diners will enjoy two courses of a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings before exploring the Studio Tour, visiting the likes of the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley's kitchen from The Burrow.

To top off the festive frivolity, a selection of festive dessert bowls will then be served on Platform 9¾ right next to the original Hogwarts Express.

Because nothing compliments a Christmas Pudding than engine smoke, right?

And in true Hogwarts fashion, the surprises don't end there.

After desert, guests will then be handed refreshing glasses of Butterbeer before wandering around Diagon Alley and enjoying the rest of the night with music and dancing with their fellow 'Ballers'.

Tickets for the Yule Ball go on sale on 24 October at 10am so you'll want to have your wands (bank cards) at the ready.

But be warned, the tickets don't come cheap- just one ticket to the ball costs a staggering £240, so you might want to postpone that trip to Bali you've been saving up for for a while.

Now, what does one wear to a Yule Ball?
