Get your Potterhead on and celebrate the release of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child on 31 July!

If your obsession with all things Harry Potter is just a bit riddikulus then you’ll be needing this list of places to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. 

Don’t get too sirius about it, there’s nothing Ron with having a healthy belief that your Hogwarts acceptance letter just got lost in the mail on your 11th birthday. Luckily for you, there’s lots of other Canberrans who are Neville going to stop loving all things Potter.
