One Very Special Evening. One Very Special Book.
Directly following its premiere at London’s Palace Theatre, midnight on Saturday 30th July sees publication of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two: The Official Script Book, the Special Rehearsal Edition of the play script that is so hugely anticipated by Harry Potter fans the world over.
As a company just brimming with Harry Potter fanatics, we of course want to properly recognise the moment where the epic eighth story is unveiled. To celebrate that evening (and the birthday of the young wizard himself), around 150 of our shops across the country will be holding very special Harry Potter parties and we’d love you to be there too.
We promise barrels of magically-inspired fun and encourage you to really fly into the Hogwarts spirit with the most imaginative fancy-dress you can muster. Shops will be staging quizzes, screenings of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, spellbinding activities and even readings from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows itself to take us toward the midnight hour. Customers will of course be able to collect their pre-orders for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child after midnight but we should emphasise that pre-order payment has to take place prior to this time.

Each shop holding an evening party is listed below and as places may be limited, we very much recommend contacting your selected branch first before attending. Remember too that our online competition to win one of seven signed copies of the Special Rehearsal Edition is still running until midnight.
We really look forward to you being part of our celebrations and we know these will be parties to make every Harry Potter fan proud. See you there!
