News just in: Harry Potter returns!

From our special correspondent at the Ministry of Magic, we have news to light the hearts of Muggles across the world, for there is now a very special new date in your calendar...

The stroke of midnight on the 31st July heralds the release of the script book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I & II, an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, accompanying the opening of a new play by Jack Thorne.

Print versions of the script book are set to be released simultaneously at 00:01 on 31 July 2016, after the production has officially premiered on July 30th.  So now everyone will be able to delight in an entirely new chapter of the Harry Potter adventure, no matter how far away from the wonders of the London stage.

Waterstones will of course be right there with you, just brimming with anticipation over the secrets and revelations of the night, and we cannot wait for you to join us!

Here is a synopsis to get you even more excited:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.
