This is what all Harry Potter fans have been waiting for... after seven best-selling books and eight blockbuster films JK Rowling is back with a brand-new story!

A scene from Harry Potter and the Cursed ChildPhoto:

Set nineteen years after the climatic Battle of Hogwarts in Deathly Hallows, Harry is now an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic and a flustered father of three school-age kids.

The Second Wizarding War might have been won, but the past refuses to stay where it belongs and Harry's youngest son Albus soon finds himself embroiled in his father's legacy.

Harry, Ron and Hermione must then set off on another extraordinary adventure, joined by a new generation of pupils from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Prepare yourself for some spectacular sets and mind-blowing special effects -- there really is nothing quite like it in London.

The most awarded play in West End history

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the most awarded play in West End history, picking up six Tony Awards and nine Olivier Awards, including Best New Play, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress.

The Cursed Child: Parts One and Two

The story has been split into two different parts -- Part One and Part Two. So if you want to see the entire story then you have to buy tickets for two completely seperate shows.

What the theatre critics say...

The Times: ★★★★★ "It is out of this world, it's magic, and it's a hit"; Sunday Times: ★★★★★ "The magical marvel we've been waiting for"; Financial Times: ★★★★★ "For a bunch of muggles the creative team has certainly brewed up a wizard show"; Evening Standard: ★★★★★ "For once the so-called theatrical event of the year really is just that"; Daily Express: ★★★★★ "You simply cannot believe the evidence of your own eyes"
