Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Release Celebration




The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne,  Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

The play will receive its world premiere in London's West End on 30th July 2016.


And on the 30th July, the Special Rehearsal Edition of the script will be released at 9.01am – and it can be yours!

Join us instore from 7.30am to 12pm to celebrate!

Come and enjoy: a costume competition, prizes, Table Quidditch, Potter photo booths, a scavenger hunt, a colouring comp and a free gift for the first 50 people to register online and attend the event!

Bring a pair of socks to help set (two) of the Dymocks House Elves free!

(Socks, hats, gloves and scarves are also welcome, to be donated in support of Melbourne’s homeless.)


Don’t forget the wizarding hour – 9.01am, when we open the boxes for your first peek at the eighth story!


About the book: It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

The Special Rehearsal Edition will be available to purchase until early 2017, after which a Definitive Edition of the script will go on sale.


Don’t miss this opportunity celebrate with us at Dymocks Melbourne!
