Get your wands and capes at the ready – though maybe leave your pointy hat at home for the sake of the person sat behind you – Harry Potter And The Cursed Child has been extended until August 2020 at the Palace Theatre.

The fourth West End Company of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child includes Jamie Ballard as Harry Potter, Susie Trayling as Ginny Potter, Dominic Short as Albus Potter; Michelle Gayle as Hermione Granger, Rayxia Ojo as Rose Granger-Weasley and Thomas Aldridge as Ron Weasley; and James Howard as Draco Malfoy and Jonathan Case as Scorpius Malfoy.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child is based on an original story by J.K Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany. It is the most awarded new play in history – winning 24 major theatre awards in the UK including a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards!

The first piece of theatre in the Harry Potter canon, the story picks up 19 years after the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Harry Potter is now the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic and his and Ginny’s younger son, Albus Severus Potter, is about to start at Hogwarts.

The story, told in two parts, follows the dangerous exploits of Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy, Draco’s son, as they misguidedly get sucked in to some precarious time travel. Involving not only this new generation of Hogwarts students, but the original characters all grown up, this story will appeal to anyone who’s ever picked up a Harry Potter book, or remembers watching one of the many films.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
