These plays are NEVER going to leave the West End, are they?

Booking has now been extended to January 2017, ahead of the general sale which begins on Friday 30 October.

Details of how the two-play project will work were revealed earlier this month, and it’s recommended that theatre-goers see each part on the same evening, or consecutive days.

It’s believed that the plays will focus on Harry Potter and Ginny’s son Albus, as he sets off on his own journey to Hogwarts.

A poster for ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ has already been revealed, and naturally, it’s sparked plenty of speculation over the storyline.

This isn’t the only ‘Harry Potter’ project getting fans excited, as the new film ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where The Find Them’ is set to go into production next year.
