More Tickets on Auction for Lumos Benefit Performance of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”

Back in May, it was announced that J.K. Rowling would be attending a special gala performance of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to benefit her charity, Lumos. As of this morning, a new batch of tickets to the gala is available via an auction!

From the press release:

Lumos and the producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have today released further tickets to the gala performance of the play, in an online auction to benefit Lumos. The Lumos gala performance of both Part One and Part Two of the play will take place on Sunday 18 September at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End. J.K. Rowling will attend and introduce the play.

Tickets are combined with special prizes and collectable [sic] items, including signed copies of the script book and VIP tickets to Warner Bros Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.

The tickets are available through the online auction website Givergy, with opening bids starting at £100 for two tickets for both Part One and Part Two of the play.

Thanks to the generosity of the play’s producers and Lumos’[s] 100% [p]ledge, every penny donated and raised in the auction will go directly to Lumos’[s] Families Not Orphanages Fund that will help children in the countries where Lumos works to leave orphanages and return to a family life. Donations do not go towards administration, fundraising or overhead costs.

You can bid right here. The tickets’ opening bids range from £100 to £700, and bidding will be open for six days.

Anyone hoping to procure tickets to this special event?

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
