Your participation in any of the lotteries in this series is subject to our standard terms and conditions, which you can view here. The Promoter of this series of lotteries is TodayTix Australia Pty Ltd.
These are the terms and conditions of entry to a ticket ballot for the chance to be offered the right to purchase up to two (2) tickets at any one performance of Parts 1 and 2 of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (the Lottery). By entering the Lottery you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
The Lottery is a series of ticket ballots and the term 'lottery'/'lotteries' is only used in a brand sense. No gambling is involved and the ‘prize’ of the right to purchase tickets itself has no monetary value and cannot be exchanged for money or other consideration.
The Lottery is operated by TodayTix Australia Pty Ltd (ABN 65 628 868 397) care of C/O Penguin Management Services Pty Ltd, Suite 1102, Level 11, 50 Margaret Street, Sydney NSW 2000 (TodayTix).
No purchase or payment is required to enter the Lottery.
To enter the Lottery you must reside in Australia and be aged 18 years or older.
You can enter the Lottery:(a) by completing and submitting the form available on TodayTix’s website before Friday at 1pm; or(b) via post by posting an envelope with your name, e-mail, phone number, post-code, number of tickets required (up to two (2) pairs) to TodayTix: Suite 1102, Level 11, 50 Margaret Street, Sydney NSW 2000
Please note that posted entries must be received at least 10 days but not more than 14 days prior to the desired performance.
Choosing to enter for either one (1) or two (2) tickets at any one performance of Parts 1 and 2 of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child holds no bearing on your chances of being drawn as a winner.
Beginning Friday 11 January, 2019, winners of the Lottery will be selected at random by a computerised process and will be notified by email at 1:00 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time on every Friday immediately before the start of the week of the relevant scheduled performances of the relevant Lottery (the Drawing).
Subject to clause 11, you can enter the Lottery for as many performances as you wish, but you can only win the Lottery for each performance once. Each entry will be for one performance only, and your entry cannot be rolled-over to a Lottery for another performance.
If you enter the Lottery through the TodayTix website, you can earn one (1) extra entry into the same Lottery that you have entered if you share the auto-filled post on Facebook and another one (1) extra entry if you share the auto-filled post on Twitter.
You acknowledge and agree that the Lottery is a chance to win the right to buy tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Parts 1 and 2 at a discounted price, and not a chance to win tickets to the performance itself.
If you are notified as being a winner of the Lottery, you will have [one (1)] hour from the Drawing to claim and purchase the tickets offered (the Acceptance Time). The tickets offered will be for the performance selected at the time you entered the Lottery, and you cannot change or request tickets for another performance.
If you do not claim and purchase the tickets offered within the Acceptance Time, then another winner will be selected at random by a computerised process and will be notified by email on the Friday immediately before the start of the week of the relevant scheduled performances of the relevant Lottery (the Second Drawing). This process will repeat every hour after the Drawing until the earlier of 5:00 pm that day (Closing Time) or a winner claims and purchases the relevant tickets offered. If a winner has not claimed and purchased the relevant tickets by the Closing Time, TodayTix reserves the right to contact entrants at random for the purpose of offering the relevant tickets.

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.
