The Harry Potter Exhibition will be held at the resort this December, as announced yesterday at The Londoner Macao.
The news was disclosed by sports star David Beckham at the performance for the resort opening at the new Londoner Arena. Beckham is the brand ambassador of the resort.
Officially referred to as Harry Potter: The Exhibition, the touring event celebrates the iconic moments, characters, settings, and beasts as seen in the Harry Potter film series and the Wizarding World.
According to Sands China Limited (SCL), the exhibition will employ immersive design and innovative technology to present a tour through the books – Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series by JK Rowling – featuring key original props, costumes, characters and locations.
To stage an interactive journey, the exhibition will allow participants to choose their favourite Hogwarts house, wands and Patronus to begin a personalised journey through this immersive experience: plop down in Hagrid’s giant chair, squeeze into the Cupboard Under The Stairs, among other scenes from the films.
