Whether you’re in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin, you’ll be glad to know that Back to Hogwarts Day is coming up. As you might be able to guess from the name, this is the day that Harry and his friends board the Hogwarts Express, and return to Hogwarts for a new and magical new year at school. It’s celebrated all over the world, and King’s Cross Station in London even recognises the day by putting Hogwarts as a destination on the train timetable. In Melbourne, you can get into the spirit with the wonderful cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Back to Hogwarts Day will take place on Thursday September 1.
Back To Hogwarts Day
Dress up in your Wizarding robes and head to the Princess Theatre for a special celebration. There will be a pre-show quiz hosted by a Harry Potter and the Cursed Child cast member at 5:15pm. There will be free merchandise for the first 100 people to arrive, and a free program for the first 50 people. Dress up in your Hogwarts house colours to go in the running to win an exclusive photo opportunity with the cast on stage after the show.
If that wasn’t enough, save $20 per ticket for the September 1 performance. If you haven’t seen this magical show, Back to Hogwarts Day is as good a time as ever!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child used to be split into two parts, but now, you can experience it all in one spectacular night. Return to the familiar world of Harry Potter, and feel stunned by the magic that unfolds live on stage. An estimated 326,500 saw the show in its first year, breaking records set by previous stage plays in the history of Australian theatre. This bewitching play holds 60 major honours, with nine Olivier Awards and six Tony Awards.
