Is a secret Harry Potter and the Cursed Child...

Yep, not only is that Harry Potter's birthday but it's also the very night that the play takes to the stage in London's West End, meaning that anyone who can't get to LDN won't be missing out for more than 59 seconds.

If you're not clued up on The Cursed Child, the book will tell the eighth story nineteen years from where we last left off with Harry, Ron and Hermione.

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.
