“Cursed Child” to Celebrate September 1 with Special Friday 400!

Pottermore has announced that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be celebrating its performances for September 1, 2017, in a very special way! Normally, the show runs what it calls the “Friday Forty” – where 40 tickets are released every Friday at 1 p.m. “for every performance the following week, for some of the very best seats in the theatre,” for £20 per part. Since this September 1 marks when Albus Severus Potter goes to Hogwarts, however, they’re multiplying it!

This coming Friday, August 4 at 4 p.m. (UTC+1:00), 400 tickets will be released – priced at £20 per part – for the performances of Parts 1 and 2 of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on September 1, 2017!

An email sent from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child covers the announcement.


We’re celebrating 19 YEARS LATER on 1st September 2017

The 1st of September 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 our play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, begins.

To mark this date, we’re celebrating with an exclusive one-off FRIDAY 400!

On Friday 4th August, at 4pm we’re releasing 400 tickets priced at £40 (£20 per part) for the performances of Parts One and Two on the 1st September 2017.

Fans hoping to get tickets as part of the special Friday 400 can visit HarryPotterThePlay.com/Friday400 for more information about how the process will work.

Additionally, the play’s official Twitter account has noted that the regular Friday Forty for performances in the week following August 4 will occur as normal.
