Coming Sunday, Harry Potter fans living in the UAE are in for a treat! On July 31, Harry Potter’s birthday, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, not the eighth book in the series but close enough, will be releasing at 3am.
Virgin Megastore in Mall of the Emirates will be open to the public from 1.30am to 4.30am on July 31 for the event. According to a report in Gulf News, the organisers have planned a party with lots of surprises.
Also, Magrudys in Jumeirah 1 is hosting an event for the occasion. They have planned a night of magic shows, games for all ages, giveaways and goodies.
The book is the script of a West End play telling the story of Potter and his friends and family, who are now adults. The play will have its world premiere in London on June 30, although it has been in previews, during which the cast and crew fine-tune the script based on the reactions of a real audience, for the past month. The play has had spectacular reviews since the preview began. We can’t wait to get our hands on this one!
