Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to release one-off sale of 400 tickets - here's how to get one

The extra tickets are in celebration of '19 Years Later'

The Harry Potter play is releasing 400 extra tickets this Friday in celebration of "19 Years Later".

The weekly forty Friday will host a special one-off sale for the September 1 showing.

That date is the day students head off to Hogwarts, and this year it's 19 Years Later the actual date that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ends and play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, begins.

If that isn't enough Harry Potter excitement this week on Monday July 31, also marked the boy wizard's 37th birthday with fans taking to Twitter to celebrate the hugely popular character.

Meanwhile Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in Concert is coming to London in 2018 for two nights at the Royal Albert Hall.

It follows a sold out screening of the Philosopher's Stone earlier this year, accompanied by a live orchestra.
