This is great news for fans of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

10 points to Gryffindor!

We were all left speechless recently after it was revealed Daniel Radcliffe hasn’t seen Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, especially given that the play focuses on Harry’s life 19 years after the battle of Hogwarts.

However, given that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child broke records at the Oliver Awards last night after sweeping up nine out of the 11 awards it was nominated for we think Daniel might want to reconsider purchasing himself a front row ticket (though lets face it – the chosen one probably won’t actually have to actually buy himself a ticket).

The ceremony on Sunday night honoured the best of 2016 British theatre and saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child walk away with the following awards (brace yourselves, it’s quite the list);

Best New Play

Best Actor (Jamie Parker)

Best Supporting Actor (Anthony Boyle and Noma Dumezweni)

Best Lighting

Best Sound Design 

Best Set Design 

Best Costumes 

Best Director 

The ceremony was hosted by comedian Jason Manford and will be screened at 8pm on ITV this Tuesday.
