Midnight release parties are back for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


Book stores everywhere are bringing back midnight release parties in celebration of the book Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I and II, the official script book of the play to be presented on stage in London’s West End. The fun starts on the eve of J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter’s birthday, July 31st.

Potter fans who were around when the first seven books were released remember gathering in the masses to be the first to get their hands on the latest stories. It became a tradition that was lost nearly nine years ago when the last book of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released.

According to Barnes and Noble, its first event starts on June 24th: “Come relive Harry’s introduction to the wizarding world. Take part in coloring activities, Harry Potter trivia, and a Wrebbit 3D Hogwarts Astronomy Tower puzzle build and enter for a chance to win a set of seven (7) Harry Potter Limited Edition Cover Prints.*” Then stores will begin the countdown celebration at 8pm on July 30th to the midnight release of the Cursed Child.

A quick search online will lead you to other local booksellers and events in your area. Support your independent bookseller! It is recommended you pre-order in advance to guarantee a copy on the day of release.
