AF Switchgear supplied multiple switchboards, panel boards and distribution equipment to the officially named ‘Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter’, based at Warner Bros Studios Leavesden situated in the county of Hertfordshire.
To honour the best-selling book and film series (the biggest grossing film series of all time) a new attraction was built at the former Leavesden Film Studios which was acquired by Warner Brothers in 2010 investing £110,000,000 to give the plot a complete refurbishment.
The former 1940’s aerodrome, spread over a 200-acre site offers flexible filming space in addition to the experience. The facility allows the public to go ‘behind the scenes’ and showcases a huge array of sets and props from the film series amounting to over ten-years-worth of Harry Potter memorabilia.
The experience reveals some of the closely guarded secrets, special effects and breath-taking animatronics that made Harry Potter the global phenomenon it is today. The attraction opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2013, regularly attracts over 40,000 visitors every week.
