The ‘Perilous Potions’ bar will launch in Arch 14, allowing wizards to magic up their own cocktails and impress their muggle friends with their creations.

And in a new approach to the pop-up experience, guests are able to book ahead online to save lengthy queues.

Linden Wilkinson from The Pop Up Geeks said: “Perilous Potions will be our most interactive experience bar to date, with guests able to conjure their own cocktails at their table in a potions class setting. “Simply select your potion from the menu and you will receive a tray of ingredients and a set of instructions. “Each potion has its own magical effect and the end result will depend entirely on your wizarding ability, however we can guarantee it will always be delicious.”
