Bucks animation & VFX students will be taking the Harry Potter Studio Tour at Leavesden on May 13th. Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden is a 80-hectare studio complex in Hertfordshire and a major film and media complex, used for filming the Harry Potter series of films. So what can our students expect on the day?

How much does it cost?
It's free! We've secured funding from the Bucks Big Deal to pay for the tickets, which means the trip is completely free for all our students.

Where do I have to be?
9.30am at Lily's Walk. Don't be late! We've booked a mini bus to take everyone along, so all you have to do is show up at Uni as per usual.  The bus is booked through Mott's Travel, so most likely the bus to look out for will look something like this bus below:

The bus will be waiting for everyone at 9.30am at Lily's Walk, on the north side of the Bucks campus, near the Eden Centre. Lily's Walk is the side road just outside the exit barrier in the main visitor car park of the Bucks New University campus.  Here's a map below, courtesy of Google Maps.

Who is going?
Around 15 students are signed up. This will be a department-wide trip, so it will also be a great opportunity to get to know some of your fellow students in different years.

When does the bus come back?
The bus will leave Leavesden at 2.30pm in the afternoon, and bring everyone back to High Wycombe.
