Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Tickets – Palace Theatre

From the brilliant imagination of J.K Rowling in collaboration with Jack Thorne and John Tiffany comes the eighth story in the Harry Potter series that has now been adapted and is presented live on stage at the Palace Theatre in the West End. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a play that is set nineteen years after the previous novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and is presented in two parts but intended to be seen in the correct order either on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.

Now a father of three, Harry finds himself as a stressed out and overworked employee of the ‘Ministry of Magic’ who is struggling to come to terms with the outcome of past events while his youngest son Albus has difficulty understanding and embracing the family legacy, so when the present and the past suddenly collide Harry and Albus must work together to defeat the darkness that is thrust upon them.

Featuring an array of incredible special effects that magically bring Harry’s Wizardry to life, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a theatrical experience that is not to be missed and is one of the most sought-after and in-demand productions ever to grace the West End stage.

After opening in London in July 2016 the production has gone on to break all box office records and has won a record-breaking 9 separate Olivier awards from 11 nominations with productions also currently running on Broadway as well as in San Francisco and Melbourne with several others in the pipeline.

How Can I Book Cheap Tickets To Harry Potter And The Cursed Child?

Before the production opened in London, advance sales for this show were pretty much unprecedented through sheer public demand it is only as recently as 2019 that producers of the show have even been offering tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to official agents to put on sale! The Palace Theatre does offer a small selection of very affordable ‘Day Tickets’ for those who don’t mind queueing up and trying their luck. Although it is rare to see discount tickets for this show, if you are booking online and looking for cheap tickets then the upper circle and balcony also offer affordable options.

How Do I Book Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Tickets If The Show Is In Two Parts?

When booking tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child online you will need to select a date to see Part One. Following this you will be offered the option to either keep your seat for the evening performance of Part Two or to attend the evening performance the following day.

Should I Avoid Upper Circle And Balcony Tickets To Harry Potter And The Cursed Child?

The Palace Theatre has four tiers with cheaper seats located on the second and third floors. There are not too many seats with bad restrictions to the view but balcony and upper circle tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are situated quite high up and as this is a play shown over two parts that are designed to be seen on the same day it is a big commitment for your bottom which should be acknowledged before purchase! It is always advisable to check the seating plan carefully before booking tickets in these sections to ensure that you have both a clear view of the stage and are aware of exactly where in the auditorium you will be seated.

Where Are The Best Tickets To Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Located?

This will depend on whether you prefer to be seated on the ground floor level in the stalls looking directly at the stage, or in the dress circle on the first floor looking down from an elevated position. The best tickets in the stalls to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are situated on the centre aisle with the numbers 15&16 being on either side and in the dress circle the centre aisle seats are number 18&19. In both sections, these seats will give customers a completely clear view of the stage along with direct access to the aisle.

Was Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Written By J.K Rowling?

Actually no! Although the play is based on an original story by Rowling along with John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, it was Thorne who is responsible for the script and bringing the story to the stage with Tiffany directing the action. The music in the production is by Imogen Heap and the choreography is by Steven Hoggett with set design from Christine Jones.

Is Harry Potter And The Cursed Child The Sequel To Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows?

Of a sort yes, although the story takes place 19 years later! The play begins with Hermione, Ron, Ginny and Harry at Kings Cross Station sending their children to Hogwarts.

Is Harry Potter And The Cursed Child In Two Separate Parts?

Yes, it is. It is slightly complicated how this works but both parts are played in the same venue at the Palace Theatre and go as follows – on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays it is possible to see the matinee performance of Part One plus an evening performance of Part Two with one ticket securing the same seat for both shows. There are evening performances of Part One on Thursdays and evening performances of Part Two on Fridays so if you have booked Part One for Thursday evening you will automatically be booked into Part Two for the following day. If you are not available to see both parts on consecutive days then it is possible to see Part One on Thursday evening and then book Part Two for a Friday evening at a later date. Clear as mud!

Has Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Won Any Awards?

The play was awarded no fewer than 9 Olivier Awards in 2017 including Best New Play and Best Director.

What Is The Running Time Of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child?

Are There Any Age Restrictions For Booking Tickets To Harry Potter And the Cursed Child?

The recommended minimum age to see the show is 10 years and patrons aged 15 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. Please be aware that children under the age of 4 will not be admitted to the theatre. It is worth noting if taking children under 10 years to see the show that although there are only a few comparatively scary bits in the play when they happen they are actually pretty terrifying so it is maybe not suitable for children who suffer from a nervous disposition!

The Palace Theatre is a large West End theatre that has a capacity of 1380 seats and four levels of seating. There are mixed views throughout the venue, which has one of the steepest balconies in the entire West End and may not be suitable for patrons suffering from vertigo. Many seats have restricted views due to support pillars and safety rails so studying the seating plan before purchase is recommended.

Seats in the front section of the Dress Circle or the centre of the Stalls are considered the premium seats in the theatre and are the optimum places to have the most immersive and unrestricted experience, with rows G-K in the Stalls being particularly good as the stage is fairly high and the rake in the seating allows for all of the action to be at eye level.

Due to the mixture of views throughout the Palace Theatre, there are many different price bands available that can bring value to your ticket purchase by studying the price cut-off point. Seats situated towards the rear of each section are often cheaper due to the overhangs from the circles, support pillars, and also their distance from the stage but can be good value for money. The Balcony section is good value and ideal for those on a budget and looking to secure lastminute deals or cheap Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets although there are some severe restrictions in this section. The front of the Balcony does offer good views though although due to how high up they are you can feel a little distant from the stage. Alternatively, sitting in the centre of the Grand Circle can also be excellent value and offers a clear view of the stage.
