Details

Throw your name into the goblet of fire and watch as a world of witchcraft and wizardry appears in front of your eyes! You’ve heard of Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets, you’ve already seen Newt Scamander and his fantastic beasts – Join us for a new unseen adventure! If you’re a geek or a regular muggle new to the books this show is a magical treat for all!

Previous shows have seen dementors unionising, conspiracies to bring down the Ministry of Magic from the trolley witch, murderous Hufflepuff horcruxes, weird Welsh dragons, aurors going missing in the owlery and barristas competing in the Triwizard Tournament. What mysteries will the next show reveal? and what name will you give it?

“I laughed my flip-flops off and went straight home to watch a proper Harry Potter film. It was good… but nowhere near as funny as The Show That Must Not Be Named.” – Daily Info

Access

There are two entrances to the Old Fire Station: 40 George Street via the foyer, and on Gloucester Green via the shop. Both are step-free. If you are coming to a show, we ask that you use the George Street entrance, as the Gloucester Green entrance is not always open.

There is level entry to the foyer of the Old Fire Station, and step-free access to the main Theatre (where most shows take place) and Studio space via lift. All spaces in the building are wheelchair-accessible via lift apart from the Theatre balcony and the Loft. If an event is in the Loft, this will be clearly stated on the event’s web page.

If you are a wheelchair user attending a sit-down show, space will be reserved for you. If you are attending a standing gig, please contact us (call Alex on 01865 263980 or e-mail tickets@oldfirestation.org.uk) and we will talk with you about your needs.

There are six steps leading up to the Loft space. If you would like to discuss hire of the space, or any of the events taking place in the Loft, please get in touch.
