After screenings of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone last week, the second film in the Harry Potter series will be shown at the Royal Albert Hall.

Conducted by Justin Freer, the BBC Concert Orchestra will perform John Williams' score to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets as the film is played on a 40ft screen.

Artistic director at the Royal Albert Hall, Lucy Noble, said: "These very special screenings will allow audiences to relive the magic and adventure of this extraordinary film in high-definition on a 40ft screen, while experiencing John Williams' epic score as they've never heard it before."

The three screenings will take place on 27 and 28 April 2018.

The eighth story in the series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is currently running at the Palace Theatre, and won a record nine Olivier Awards at this year's ceremony.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was released in 2002 and starred Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. The film was nominated for three BAFTA Awards, and the score was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra accompanied screenings of the first Potter film last week, and will tour the UK to Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Glasgow.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be screened at the Royal Albert Hall on 27 and 28 April 2018.
