With more than 70,000 people vying for them, tickets for all performances of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child between 7th June and 18th September 2016 have already sold out – but there is hope for those still queueing.
The seats were snapped up during the ‘priority sale’ this Wednesday morning, open to fans who had signed up via the show’s official website before October 24th 2015.
Many are still waiting in the online queue to book tickets, and browser issues mean some have been unable to select dates even when they have reached the front of the line.
However, the show’s producers have now opted to release even more tickets to those who registered for priority access.
People still sitting in the priority queue will now be able to book seats for the second booking period, covering performances from 21st September 2016 up until 8th January 2017.
A general sale – open to those who didn’t sign up for priority access – is due to begin at 11am GMT on Friday 30th October for any remaining tickets.
And if you’re really worried about struggling to get tickets for a show before 2017, don’t despair. Four special preview performances are planned for the end of May 2016, and details of where and how to obtain tickets will be announced at a later date.
