The 15 Stages Of Booking Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Today is the day that tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child go on sale!

Billed as ‘The Eighth Story’ in the Harry Potter saga, this new play penned by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany follows Harry and his family 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. And suffice to say, everyone is more than a bit excited about this. Myself included.

So to mark this occasion, I thought I’d write up a first hand account of what booking tickets was like. Half as a guide for those who are waiting for general release of tickets, and half because WOW, it was quite the rollercoaster of emotions! It’s told in 15 stages and, of course, each stage will use a gif from Harry Potter.

 

1) The day’s finally here for the chosen few (thousands) lucky enough to get Priority Booking!

2) Not that our friends on Facebook who didn’t know/get Priority Booking weren’t happy for us…

3) 10.30: booking doesn’t open for another 30 minutes, you haven’t even got the link yet, but you’re still a bit too excited!

4) 10.45: YES. YOU’VE GOT MAIL. And fortunately not a howler!

5) 10.59: you anxiously wait to see where you’ve been sorted in the queue…

6) 11.00: there are those of us 1500th in the queue

7) And those of us 15,000th.

8) When you make it to the front of the queue, it feels like an eternity.

9) Although I’m not sure how long it was, to be exact. YO SIRIUS, what was it…1 hour, 3 hours…

10) There were some who had ‘technical difficulties’…

11) Okay…a few more than ‘some’…

12) But finally, YES, YOU GOT THE TICKETS! You feel a sense of excitement:

13) A sense of accomplishment:

14) …maybe a bit too much excitement…

15) And for those still waiting for general release: we’ll all get there eventually. And you know why? Because…

And we can’t wait to go back together…
