About the show

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child arrives on the London stage in a spellbinding two-part epic.

Wands at the ready! Harry Potter is back. Premiering at the Palace Theatre in May 2016, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child has dazzled London’s theatre world.

Based on a new story by JK Rowling, this magical play by Jack Thorne has something tastier than Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans to offer audiences young and old.

In Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, our wizard heroes Harry, Hermione and Ron are now all grown up and faced with a problem more scary than Voldemort: raising children. Set a world away from the dark and creaky corridors of Hogwarts, the boy wizard is now a dad of three and knuckling down to work at the Ministry of Magic.

But will Harry be able to find the right spell to make everything OK with his son Albus?

Jamie Ballard leads the cast as Harry. Susie Trayling and Joe Idris-Roberts complete the Potter family as Ginny and Albus. Thomas Aldridge plays Ron with Rakie Ayola as Hermione and Helen Aluko as their daughter Rose. James Howard takes the role of Draco Malfoy with Jonathan Case as his son Scorpius.

John Tiffany directs this enchanting first outing on stage for JK Rowling’s Harry Potter. The eighth story of the epic tale, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is split into two parts, designed to be seen on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.

Book your tickets early, as this production is set to send queues all the way back to platform 9 3/4 and beyond.

Winner of 9 awards at the 2017 Olivier Awards with MasterCard.
