From Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross Station to iconic scenes of everyone’s favourite wizarding hero soaring above Tower Bridge, London has always held a special place in the Hogwarts Universe. This spring, however, the city is set to play an even more important role as Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets is performed live in concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
Based just a few minutes away from the Amsterdam Hotel in Kensington & Chelsea, the world-renowned venue has spent the past few years bringing some of the biggest blockbusters to life in spectacular fashion as part of its Films in concert series, with the likes of Jaws, Titanic, and even the recent Beauty & The Beast remake starring Emma Watson (best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise) being given the Royal Albert Hall treatment.
As incredible as all of those events were, we have to admit that there’s something extra special about Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets in Concert that has got us even more excited than usual.
A Spellbinding Performance of the Original Film With a Live Orchestral Score
Why are we so looking forward to what promises to be a truly magical evening of entertainment?
Because this isn’t just your average big-screen Harry Potter experience.
Rather, it’s the 2002 blockbuster screened in all its captivating, high-definition glory on the Royal Albert Hall’s huge 40-foot cinema screen, with John William’s enchanting, original score performed live by the legendary Royal BBC Concert Orchestra, led by acclaimed conductor, Justin Freer.
A Truly Unmissable Event for Any Harry Potter Fan
Last year, Freer led the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra in a rousing performance of the first Harry Potter film, The Philosopher’s Stone.
Back then, we snuck away from our hotel in Kensington and Chelsea to witness the spectacle up close and personal, and if this year’s showing of Chamber of Secrets is even half as mesmerising as the boy wizard’s Royal Albert Hall debut, then we’re fully confident in telling you that this is one event no Harry Potter fan should miss in 2018.
Fortunately, you don’t have to.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets runs from Friday, April 27th to Sunday, April 29th 2018, with three showings at 1pm, 6pm, and 7pm.
Tickets are still available too, so there’s no reason to miss even a moment of the magic.
Besides, we’ve got the perfect place for you to stay to truly make it a most enchanted weekend to remember.
