Event Calendar – November


What: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™ in Concert
When: 10th-11th November.
Where: Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Perth, Western Australia.


The Harry Potter™ Film Concert Series returns to Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™, the second film in the Harry Potter franchise. The West Australian Symphony Orchestra will perform John Williams’ unforgettable score while the film plays in high-definition on a 40-foot screen.

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™, cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious house-elf comes to warn Harry Potter at the start of the second year of his amazing journey into the world of wizardry. This year at Hogwarts, spiders talk, letters scold and Harry’s own unsettling ability to speak to snakes turns his friends against him. From Dueling Clubs to rogue Bludgers, it’s a year of adventure and danger when bloody writing on a wall announces: “The Chamber of Secrets has been opened.” Saving Hogwarts will require all of Harry’s, Ron’s and Hermione’s magical abilities and courage.

Earning a Grammy nomination for the score, the bewitching and incredible music became an instant classic, conjuring beautiful and soaring motifs continuing the story of Harry Potter on his magical adventures.
