Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the past few months, you will be aware that the next chapter in the story of Harry Potter is currently delighting audiences in London’s West End (I’ll see what I think when I go in September).
However, if you weren’t able to nab yourself some of the 170,000 tickets that went on sale last time, then this post is a reminder that a further 250,0000 tickets are released tomorrow!
Here’s what you need to know before tomorrow morning! Good luck Muggles!
- Tickets are being released for performances from 27 May-10 December 2017
- Tickets go on sale via the official website at 11 a.m. (BST) tomorrow (4th August)
- The website will be operating an online queuing system, which will open at 10 a.m. Just head to the website from 10 a.m. to be placed in the queue (at random, so if makes no difference if you join at 10:01 or 10:58 a.m.). You can of course still join the queue after 11 a.m.
- At 11 a.m., tickets will go on sale and you’ll await your turn (watching the little wizard walk along the queue status bar if it’s like last time)!
- Once you are in, if it’s like last time, there will be symbols showing the availability of each date. If you are flexible, I’d scroll down to those with the best availability, as you are then more likely to secure seats than fighting over earlier dates with fewer seats to go around.
- No need to think about where to sit. Just decide on your price band in advance. To speed up the process, the system will automatically allocate you the best available for your chosen date.
- Booking is limited to 6 per transaction (that’s 6 sets of tickets to see both parts 1 and 2).
- If online is not an option for you, call +44 0330 333 4410.
In case it’s useful, here is a link to the theatre’s ticket infographic chart – Infographic Chart
There used to be price banding chart when deciding what seats you want to go for – it seems to have disappeared, so perhaps it’s changed a little, but in June it was roughly that the cheapest two bands were only available in the balcony, with the circle and stalls being the higher bands.
I hope that’s useful! Let me know how you get on!
