Your participation in any of the lotteries in the series is subject to our standard terms and conditions, which you can view here. The Promoter of this series of lotteries is TodayTix, Ltd.
This is a series of promotional prize draws and the term 'lottery'/'lotteries' is only used in a brand sense. No gambling is involved.
You must reside in the UK and be aged 18 or older to enter any of the lotteries in the series. Any entries made from outside the UK will be subject to UK law.
No purchase is required to enter but if you win you will need to pay for each ticket.
You can earn one extra entry into the same lottery that you have entered if you share the auto-filled post on Facebook and another if you share the auto-filled post on Twitter.
All winners are drawn at random by a computerised process.
There are a limited number of discounted price tickets available as prizes for each lottery in the series, which are always drawn in two stages:
- All tickets available are drawn at random and assigned to winners
- If a winner declines or fails to claim their tickets within an hour, these tickets will be re-assigned at random to another entrant
Choosing to enter for either 1 or 2 pairs of tickets holds no bearing on your chances of being drawn as a winner.
When the winners are drawn for each lottery in the series, the same computer process will be used to randomly select "reserve" winners, as described in section 5 above (i.e. those who selected an individual ticket upon entry could become a "reserve" winner if one or more of the winners in stage 1 of the draw do not claim their respective ticket). If you are a "reserve" winner and the original winner does not claim the tickets, you will be sent an email to let you know that you’ve been assigned as a winner. All replacement winners are selected from the drawn "reserve" at random.
TodayTix takes no responsibility for undelivered ‘winner’ emails or push notifications.
Please note that your entry into a lottery for the chance to purchase 1 or 2 pairs of tickets for a particular performance pair will not be rolled-over to any lottery for another performance.
Tickets cannot be exchanged, refunded or resold. If the Palace Theatre agree to resell all or any of the tickets purchased on the day of the performance, TodayTix will only ever offer a TodayTix voucher, equal to the value of the ticket(s) resold.
Employees and their immediate families of the Promoter, its agents or anyone professionally connected with the Promoter are not able to enter.

Because of the epic nature of the story, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child unfolds in two Parts. When you purchase tickets to see the show, you will receive a pair of tickets per guest, one for each Part. You will either see the Parts on the same day or consecutive evenings.
About Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne. It is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.
The critically acclaimed production is most awarded West End play in the history of the Olivier Awards, winning a record-breaking nine awards including Best New Play and Best Director in 2017.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.
The show is suitable for ages 10 and up. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket. Babes-in-arms are not admitted to the auditorium. Please note that patrons under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
