Van Piere’s bookshop will open on Friday night especially for fans who can’t wait to buy the new Harry Potter book. Doors open at midnight, to allow the first books to be bought.
The Dutch version of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will go on sale from Saturday. Nieuwe Emmasingel will be the setting for waiting fans, as the bookshops and the street will change, briefly, into Diagon Alley, a well-known shopping street in the Harry Potter stories.
The world première of the book was in London, on 30 June.
