How to be smart like a Ravenclaw in Melbourne

Use this exclusive mid-week opportunity to add more chops to your intelligent reputation

By Time Out in association with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Ravenclaws of Melbourne are smarter than your average cookies. They know how to use their intelligence and wit to make the most of our cultured city's experiences on the regular. They also consider themselves purveyors of original ideas and ahead of the pack when it comes to knowing the uncut gems of Melbourne. The first to see, do, eat and Instagram everything, a Ravenclaw is the citizen journalist and armchair expert we all fear (but secretly love).

If you identify as a Ravenclaw and live in Melbourne you can cast your discerning eye over this itinerary and pretend we aren't on the money. We've got you pegged you smarty pants.

Get your fill of world-class theatre with a trip to the epic Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It's got all the intellectual stimulation and cultural clout you need to maintain your big throbbing brain in private and public. There's mystery, thrills, a scene in a library and enough mind-blowing visual tricks to keep a well-heeled Ravenclaw engaged up the wazoo. 

Always on the hunt for another piece of insider knowledge, Ravenclaws will be delighted to know about an exclusive ticket price to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for Time Out readers. Use our magic portal to access exclusive midweek tickets for $99 (plus $9.75 transaction fee) per part. On Wednesdays you can watch the whole thing with part one hitting the stage at 2pm and part two at 7.30pm. Or spread your educational adventure over two nights with part one on Thursday at 7.30pm and the second half kicking off the Ravenclaw theatre-appreciating witching hour, Friday at 7.30pm.

So what are you waiting for? Find a date that works for your dense, event-laden schedule and make the most of this exclusive opportunity. This is the epitome of working smarter, not harder after all.
