On 1 September 2017 it will be 19 Years Later: the actual date that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is set, and where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child begins.

To commemorate this very special date, on Friday 4 August there will be a one-off ‘Friday 400’, offering tickets at £20 per part to the two performances of the play on the day in question.

The epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which features Harry, Hermione, Ron and Ginny arriving at platform nine-and-three-quarters and sending their children off to Hogwarts, also marks the beginning of the eighth story, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

For the characters, this was set 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts – but that day is finally here.

To mark this momentous occasion, 400 fantastic seats for Cursed Child are going to go on sale for the Back to Hogwarts performance. There may even be some little surprises in store if you’re lucky enough to get tickets, so it’s destined to be a special day all round.

Those who’ve seen the show, or who’ve been keeping an eye on the website, will already know about the Friday Forty tickets. These pop up at the end of every week and give fans a chance to buy much-coveted seats for the following week’s performances.

On 4 August, the Friday Forty will happen as usual at 1pm, but then the one-off Friday 400 will follow at 4pm – offering seats for £40 (£20 per part) for the performances of Parts One and Two on Friday 1 September.

All you have to do is visit the Cursed Child website on Friday 4 August and join the virtual waiting room to be in with a chance to get tickets when they are released at 4pm.

This is your chance to experience Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on an incredibly important day in Harry Potter history. What better way to celebrate?
