Journey to Find the Cursed Child, hosted by Los Angeles Dumbledore's Army

  • 1739 Public House 1739 North Vermont Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90027 United States (map)

21+ Witches, Wizards, Squibs and Muggles!

The 8th Harry Potter story is almost here (and you thought there would be no more Harry Potter book midnight releases after Deathly Hallows)! 

Put on your wizarding best and join the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army (the group that brings you Harry Potter Roller Skating Night) for a magical night of trains, food, potion drinking, games and more on our journey to find Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!

Be sure to pre-order your book ahead of time so it’s waiting for you right at Midnight so you don’t have to wait in line at the register like a Muggle:

5:00pm – Arrive at King’s Cross Station (Union Station) and meet your fellow Potterheads and find out how you can win a magical Harry Potter themed goodie bag with our Instagram contest. Look for the signs in the main seating area, secure all Metro tap cards or tickets upon arrival.

5:45pm – Group picture!

6:00pm – Jump on the Hogwarts Express (Metro Red Line) at Platform 9 ¾ towards Diagon Alley (Vermont & Sunset). 

6:05pm - Sing the Hogwarts House song while aboard the Hogwarts Express

6:30pm – Walk (or apparate) to the Leaky Cauldron (1739 Public House)

7:00pm - Enjoy some awesome British pub food, beer and Harry Potter themed cocktails!

9:45 pm - Walk (or apparate) to Flourish & Blotts (Skylight Books)

10:00pm – Have fun with fellow fans enjoying Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit Dueling, face painting, costume contest, countdown, snacks, wine and more!

Midnight – Get your edition of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and start reading!

As a reminder, this is a public, 21+ over event since part of it takes place at a bar. We highly encourage you to pre-order your book from Skylight to ensure you get your copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child:

See you at King’s Cross Station!
