New Lumos gala tickets released for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

From Lumos --

 

Lumos and the producers of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child have today released further tickets to the gala performance of the play, in an online auction to benefit Lumos. The Lumos gala performance of both Part One and Part Two of the play will take place on Sunday 18 September at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End. J.K. Rowling will attend and introduce the play.

Tickets are combined with special prizes and collectable items, including signed copies of the script book and VIP tickets to Warner Bros Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.  

The tickets are available through the online auction website Givergy https://givergy.com/charity/lumos with opening bids starting at £100 for two tickets for both Part One and Part Two of the play.

Thanks to the generosity of the play’s producers and Lumos’ 100% Pledge, every penny donated and raised in the auction will go directly to Lumos’ Families Not Orphanages Fund that will help children in the countries where Lumos works to leave orphanages and return to a family life.  Donations do not go towards administration, fundraising or overhead costs. 

The gala performance of the play is one of a series of exciting events for Lumos this Autumn in the We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign aimed at enhancing awareness of the harm caused to children placed in orphanages and raising funds for Lumos’ Families Not Orphanages Fund.  Other events include an advance screening of the new film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in New York City on 12 November, with a chance to see J.K. Rowling in conversation with the film’s main star and Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne.

An estimated eight million children around the world live in orphanages and institutions, despite 80% having at least one living parent that could care for them with some support.

A new, two minute film, showing how Lumos helps individual families and children, has also been released today. It tells the story of Lumos’ work to reunite one mother with her baby, who had been sent to an institution as soon he was born, due to a disability diagnosis at birth – just one of the 2,376 children supported by the organisation in the last year to leave orphanages.

Over the past decade, Lumos has helped thousands of other children – from infants to older children – return to family life in Central and Eastern Europe and more recently in Haiti. Now, in its second decade, Lumos is expanding its work in Latin America and the Caribbean, and other regions around the world with the aim to end institutionalisation of children globally by 2050.

James and Oliver Phelps to Attend Harry Potter: The Exhibition Brussels Grand Opening

From Warner Bros --

This Thursday, 30 June 2016, Harry Potter™ fans in Belgium will finally have the opportunity to step inside the famous wizard’s world when Harry Potter: The Exhibition opens at Palais 2 of Brussels Expo. Actors James and Oliver Phelps, who played Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter film series, bring their magical wit and charm to Brussels to celebrate the grand opening.

Since its world premiere in Chicago, the exhibition has already received more than 3.5 million visitors and has included stops in Boston, Toronto, Seattle, New York, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, Paris and Shanghai. Tickets for the exhibition at Brussels Expo are available at www.expoharrypotter.be.

In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, GES created the 1,400-square- meter experiential exhibition,where visitors are able to enjoy dramatic displays inspired by the Harry Potter film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes, props and creatures from the films. Fire-Starter, Brussels Expo and EncoreB are partnering with GES to present the exhibition in Brussels.

“It’s always amazing to meet Harry Potter fans in their hometowns. We have traveled to numerous cities with Harry Potter: The Exhibition and the fans are always a delight,” said James Phelps. “We are excited to return here to Brussels. We remember what huge Harry Potter fans the Belgians are and can’t wait to see their reactions to the great props, costumes, and creatures,” added Oliver Phelps.

“The response in Belgium since the announcement in January has been incredibly exciting. It is clear that Harry Potter: The Exhibition is supported by a large group of enthusiastic fans and I’m thrilled to be part of the team bringing it Brussels,” says Manu Braff of Fire-Starter. “It is an honor to work with Brussels Expo, GES and Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring such a beloved brand to Brussels. I am delighted to give Belgian fans a chance to experience Harry Potter: The Exhibition,” added Pascal Bernardin of Encore-B.

“We are thrilled to bring Harry Potter: the Exhibition to Brussels. We hope everyone will have a chance to be drawn into the magical spell of this exhibition, allowing them to relive their favorite moments from the films,” said Eddie Newquist, chief creative officer for GES. “A visit to Harry Potter: The Exhibition is great for anyone who loves seeing how blockbuster films become a reality.”

From the moment guests enter Harry Potter: The Exhibition, they are immediately immersed in the world of Harry Potter. Guests are greeted by an exhibit host who sorts several lucky fans into their favorite Hogwarts™ houses, then leads them inside the exhibition where their journey to favorite scenes from the Harry Potter films begins. The exhibition features settings from the films’ most popular locations—including the Gryffindor™ common room and dormitory; classrooms like Potions and Herbology; and the Forbidden Forest—which are filled with thousands of authentic props, costumes, and creatures used in the filming of the iconic series.

In addition to the beautiful environments and displays, there are several interactive elements. Guests can enter the Quidditch™ area and toss a Quaffle ball, pull their own baby Mandrake in the Herbology classroom vignette, and even tour a re-creation of Hagrid’s hut and sit in his giant-sized armchair.

The exhibition, in Brussels for a limited engagement, will be open daily. Timed-entry tickets are required, and the last entry will be one hour-and-a-half before the closing of the exhibition. Tickets to the exhibition are on sale at www.expoharrypotter.be.

J.K. Rowling to Attend Special Screening of Fantastic Beasts Film To Benefit Lumos

From Lumos --

LUMOS FOUNDATION USA -- author J.K. Rowling’s international non-profit children's organization--announced today that J.K. Rowling will join Academy Award® winner Eddie Redmayne on stage at the Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall on Saturday, November 12th, 2016 at 6:00 pm for a conversation, followed by a special advance screening of the much-anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures feature film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Starting today at 11:00 am ET, tickets to this family event (age recommendation 10 years+) range from $25-$500 and will be available at the Carnegie Hall Box Office at 57th St. and Seventh Avenue in New York City, CarnegieCharge 212-247-7800, and online at http://www.carnegiehall.org/

This exclusive event to benefit Lumos Foundation USA, in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures and publisher Scholastic Inc., will follow the film’s worldwide premiere, being held earlier that week in New York, and is prior to the UK premiere in London the following week.  The film will open worldwide on November 18th, 2016 and on November 19th  Scholastic will publish the screenplay of the film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J. K. Rowling in the United States and Canada.

The benefit screening at Carnegie Hall will be introduced by director David Yates together with members of the cast.  All proceeds will go directly toward the work of Lumos to help the eight million children in orphanages around the world get back to family life. 

The film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a new and original story by J.K. Rowling, marking her screenwriting debut.  In addition to Eddie Redmayne, the film also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo and Colin Farrell.  

Ticket revenues will support the We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign in the United States, UK and across the globe.  The campaign will launch in September and help raise awareness and funds to end the harmful and unnecessary practice of placing children in orphanages. 

“Decades of research and evidence show us that all aspects of a child’s development suffer when they are raised in orphanages and institutions.  These places can never replace what a child needs, which is love, care and attention from a dedicated parent or caregiver” said Georgette Mulheir, CEO of Lumos.  “Because most children in orphanages are not orphans, they can go home if we can put the right support in place for their families.”

“We are profoundly grateful to J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. and Scholastic for making this exciting film screening possible.  Not only is it an opportunity to be among the first to see the film, but it will also help Lumos do the vital work needed to help the millions of vulnerable and voiceless children in orphanages get back to their families and family life, which is their right, and it is where they belong.”

“Warner Bros. is proud to support the important work done by Lumos” said Kevin Tsujihara, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros.  “Jo has inspired millions with her amazing storytelling, and now Lumos is doing the same through their work on behalf of children everywhere.  They are truly changing the world, one child at a time.”

"J.K. Rowling’s brilliant Harry Potter series has inspired and encouraged millions of children around the world.  Now Jo and the Lumos Foundation are improving the lives of millions more children by helping return them to family life, and Scholastic is proud to support this important work," said Dick Robinson, Chairman, President and CEO, Scholastic.

Thanks to the generosity of Warner Bros., Scholastic and Lumos’ 100% Pledge, every cent donated and raised by the event will go directly to Lumos’ Families Not Orphanages Fund. The Fund will help children in the countries where Lumos works to leave orphanages and return to a family life. No portion of any donations will go to administration, fundraising or overhead costs of the organization. 

Visitors to the wearelumos.org/worldwide website are invited to sign up now to the We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign, which will launch in September. Those registering now will receive early notification of further exciting announcements. 

Over the past decade, Lumos has helped thousands of children – from infants to older children – return to family life in Central and Eastern Europe and more recently in Haiti. Now, in its second decade, Lumos is expanding its work in Latin America and the Caribbean, and other regions around the world with the aim to end institutionalization of children globally by 2050.
