Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Tickets

J. K. Rowling's Wizarding World is transformed on stage, offering fans a unique return to their favourite fantasy world. Best for age 10+.

Step back into the Wizarding World

Reuniting lifelong fans with Harry, Ron and Hermione, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the spectacular continuation of J.K. Rowling’s best-selling series.

Jack Thorne’s bewitching play is set 19 years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when Harry’s son Albus has just started Hogwarts and a new threat emerges that seems very familiar. Director John Tiffany and illusionist Jamie Harrison have created a dazzling array of special effects for the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child London production, and it scooped a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards after premiering in 2016.

Both a delight for long-term fans and a magical example of kids' theatre in London, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets are some of the most in-demand.

What is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child about?

Set 19 years after the final book, the play follows Harry, Ron and Hermione’s children as they begin studying at Hogwarts. Harry’s middle child, Albus, is struggling with the attention that comes with being related to his famous father, whilst Harry is struggling with the pressure of a demanding job at the Ministry of Magic. The past is never far away, and when a familiar type of evil rears its head, father and son both discover that darkness can come from unexpected places.

Audiences are encouraged to #KeepTheSecret, so what happens next cannot be shared, but you can expect to see lots of familiar faces from the books and some surprising new characters as well.

Tickets FAQ

Ticket prices range from around £18 to more than £150 per part, depending on performance dates and availability.
Tickets in Stalls Rows C - J can cost over £150 per part, and the centre of Grand Circle Rows A - C are also in this price range.

Premium seats in the Dress Circle offer a “phenomenal view”, according to one theatregoer in A18, but legroom can be a bit tight. Comparably priced seats in the Stalls such as D14 are the best for seeing the magic up close, and getting immersed in the Wizarding World.
This popular show sells very well in advance, so always try to book at least a month before your visit for the best choice of seats in the lower price range. Also look at midweek performances if possible, because sometimes seats are up to 40% cheaper compared to the weekend.

Check fellow theatregoers’ view from seat photos and ratings to find hidden gems, such as Grand Circle A22, which has just a slight restriction from the safety bar, or seats at the side such as D37.

The play is not often discounted, so seasonal promotions such as London Theatre Week are the best time to book seats for less. The exclusive prices on offer are often some of the best you will find all year.
