Hogwarts fans can now enjoy a vegan afternoon tea at Warner Bros’ “The Making of Harry Potter” Studio Tour in Watford in the UK.
The new option includes several sandwiches, like Vegan Smoked Salmon with Vegan Lemon Butter, as well as a Greek Style Feta Envelope, a Herb Crusted Vegan Sausage Roll, Vegan Scones, Chocolate Frog Brownies, and more.
Warner Bros revealed the new plant-based option on its Instagram account earlier this week with the caption: “Immerse yourself in the wizarding world as you feast on an inspiring selection of magical treats.”
The vegan wizarding world
It’s not the only vegan option the Studio Tour offers. In 2020, it launched a vegan version of Butterbeer, the butterscotch-flavored drink enjoyed by Hogwarts students in both the books and the subsequent movie franchise.
Prior to the launch, Evanna Lynch—a vegan activist and actor who played the character of Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films—called on Warner Bros to offer a vegan version of the popular beverage.
She said back in 2018: “I’ve been a member of the vegan community for the past five years and the Harry Potter community for most of my life, and nothing makes me happier than when these two worlds intersect.”
“I genuinely can’t imagine a lovelier day out than going to The Wizarding World to enjoy a butterbeer with my vegan friends. I will be first in line when that day comes.”
Lynch also hosted a podcast called The Chickpeeps with actor and fellow Harry Potter star Robbie Jarvis, as well as Momoko Hill and Tylor Starr.
Each episode discussed topics relating to veganism, including animal advocacy, farming, and activism. There was also a crossover with MuggleCast, a podcast dedicated to Harry Potter.
Series three of The Chickpeeps came to a close last year, and while a fourth season was mentioned at the time, nothing has been announced since.
