It would seem that Warner Bros. has picked up 80 new broomsticks from a 300-year-old family run business for use in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire which is scheduled for release in November 2005.
Arthur Nash Traditional Besom Brooms is still run by Arthur's family since his passing last year, with his wife, Sue, telling BBC News Online:
Each of the brooms takes a year in planning & at his peak Mr. Nash could create 100 brooms a day, here is a picture of some of the brooms. One can assume that these new broomsticks will be used in the scene from the Quidditch World Cup at the beginning of the movie.
