What's it all about?

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the latest instalment in the popular franchise.

The story continues 19 years after the events in the Deathly Hallows and follows Harry, who now works at the Ministry of Magic, and his son Albus Severus who attends Hogwarts.

A detailed plot is yet to be revealed as JK Rowling wants fans who see the play and read the script to keep it a secret by promoting the hashtag #KeepTheSecrets.

How do I get tickets?

To buy tickets online, visit either the Nimax Theatres or ATG Tickets websites... But be sure to be VERY prompt at 11am, as tickets are likely to sell extremely fast.
