Harry Potter fans rejoice! We know that there will be a play entitled “Harry Potter and The Cursed Child”, which tells the story of Harry and his friends after the “Deathly Hallows”. Even if you can’t watch the play, there’s a bigger chance for you to know the story years after the seventh book because it will be released in book form. And the best part about this eight book is it will have its first ever midnight release party.
Popular British bookstore chain, Waterstones Piccadilly is going to be the first bookstore in the world that will hold a midnight release party for “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” in July. This store location boasts the biggest selection of books in England across six floors, which is why it is the perfect place to hold a midnight release party for one of the most awaited books of the year.
Fans will be happy to know that the required tickets for the party are now on sale. For £15, you get a copy of the book, a “drinks voucher” (for Butterbeer), and each copy of the script book that “will be exclusively stamped on the night to mark this special occasion.” Attendees are encouraged to wear their “Wizarding World Finest”, so you can come as any Harry Potter character or dress up as a simple wizard. You can be anyone, as long as you show your love for the Harry Potter fandom. Once you have purchased the tickets, additional party details will arrive via email. Buy your tickets now on this site.
Waterstones Piccadilly is not new to release events, as they also held a midnight release party for “Deathly Hallows”. It was an event filled with lots of activities, so expect to have a great time at the party for “The Cursed Child”.
For those who cannot be in London, worry not because other major bookstores are expected to announce their midnight release parties in the next weeks and months. American bookstores, Barnes & Noble and Books a Million are planning to host special events for the release of “The Cursed Child”. But, better wait for details before planning.
This is very exciting because, after a long time, another Harry Potter book will finally come out. It is going to feel like the past book releases where everyone is rejoicing and having fun celebrating the Harry Potter fandom.
