What's Happening in Melbourne

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child 

The most anticipated play of the year has arrived, just a stone’s throw away from our hotel on Spring Street. Calling the Princess Theatre home till December 2019, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is the much awaited eighth story in the Harry Potter series and its first stage production. Melbourne is also the only city outside of London's West End and New York's Broadway to host the play.

Staged across two parts, The Cursed Child delves into the now grown-up Harry’s life as an employee of the Ministry of Magic, and the pressure his youngest son – Albus – has to contend with, being part of a famous family and legacy within the wizarding world.

The Wizard's Suite

Situated in the theatre district, The Hotel Windsor is just two minutes’ walk from the Princess theatre.

Together with The Store of Requirement, we have also transformed one of our Windsor Suites into a Wizard's Suite for the duration of the show. Enhance your magical experience with an overnight stay, or join us during the intermission for our famous Afternoon Tea or a nightcap at our new wine and gin bar.
