Harry Potter and the Cursed Child midnight launch

Saturday 30th July 10:30 - Sunday 31st July 01:00 at Telford

Join us to celebrate the launch of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at midnight!


The Cursed Child is a play written by JK Rowling which picks up the story of Harry Potter nineteen years after he defeated Voldemort and left Hogwarts. It's currently on stage in London, but the book will allow everyone to enjoy the magic of this new adventure in their own home.

We are celebrating this momentous occasion with a midnight launch party, compelte with dressing up, activities and even some real live owls!



The Telford shopping centre will be opening from 10.30pm on Saturday 30th July (please use the doors by McDonald's). At midnight, on the 31st July – Harry Potter's birthday! - the book will officially be released.


How does it work?

To be one of the first people to get hold of the latest installment of the Potter Universe, just pre-order your copy of the book in store now! All pre-orders are half price, which means it's just £10 for the book and an evening of magical excitement.


This is a ticketed event and you must have paid for a pre-order in order to get a ticket. Without a ticket, you will not be able to collect a book on the night. However, you can bring as many people as you want per ticket.


And don't worry – you won't be waiting in line all night, as we are using a 'virtual queue' system. Just come to Waterstones when your number is called.


For any questions or information about online orders, please call 01952 21 00 22 to speak to a bookseller (or should we say wizard...)
