Ticket Alert: See Hocus Pocus Live In Concert This Halloween

London's barely had a summer so far this year, and yet it's already gearing up for Halloween, because a special screening of Disney's Hocus Pocus has been announced, and tickets are on sale this week.

Disney's Hocus Pocus in Concert comes to London the day before Halloween, screening the 1993 Salem-set comedy about witching trio the Sanderson Sisters, on a large screen at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, accompanied by a live orchestra performing John Debney's score.

Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker are the three witches who attempt to steal the life essence from the town's children so they can enjoy eternal life, only to be thwarted in their evil scheming.

Although Hocus Pocus is now considered a Halloween classic, it was originally released in US cinemas in July 1993 — likely why it didn't initially perform so well at the box office. But it does make us feel better about writing about Halloween in what should be peak summer...

Disney's Hocus Pocus in Concert takes place on Wednesday 30 October 2024 at the Eventim Apollo. Tickets go on sale on Friday 12 July at 10am.
