Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition | Even in Spring, Winter is Coming
Call your bannermen … Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition will make its debut visit to the UK and Ireland at the TEC Belfast, Northern Ireland, for a limited run from April 11, 2019.
Based on the smash hit HBO fantasy series, the dramatic exhibition combines costumes, authentic props and majestic settings from all seven seasons of the show to create an interactive and immersive Game of Thrones experience like no other.
The largest public display based on the George R. R. Martin adaptation yet, it will run until September 1, 2019 in the 5,000m2 venue. Given how much of the series was shot in Belfast and other areas of Northern Ireland, the exhibition continues Game of Thrones’ incredible legacy in the region.
In fact, the TEC Belfast – which is in the footprint of the legendary Titanic Studios – is where much of the series was filmed over a 10-year period. As such, fans will be able to authentically immerse themselves in the fictional villages of Westeros and Essos, as well as relive the trials and tribulations of those who struggle for survival in the shadow of the Iron, ahead of the highly anticipated eighth and final season.
The exhibition will give attendees the experience of a lifetime with an up-close and personal look at the artistry and craftmanship behind the Emmy award-winning series. Fans will have the opportunity to see the wintry landscapes of the North and the tree-lined pathway of the Kingsroad; view a garrison of Unsullied warriors and the iconic costumes of House Targaryen; step into the House of Black and White; explore Castle Black – the home of the Night’s Watch; and battle for the Iron Throne. Opening times for the exhibition throughout April and May are 10am to 7pm daily.
Featuring Irish actors Aidan Gillen, Aisling Franciosi, Ciaran Hinds, Conleth Hill, Ian McElhinney, Jack Gleeson, Liam Cunningham, Richard Dormer and Michelle Fairley, Game of Thrones premiered on HBO in April 2011. It is set in a mythical continent and follows several powerful families as they fight for control of the land.
Throughout its time on the air, it has attracted record viewership for the network and has earned a broad, active, international fanbase. It is also critically acclaimed, with the show having received 47 Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2015, 2016, and 2018, more than any other primetime scripted television programme.
The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones is scheduled to premiere on April 14 on HBO in America and April 15 on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland. Unlike previous seasons, it only consists of six episodes and will wrap up in May 2019.
Thus, now is the time to bend the knee and book tickets for this not-to-be-missed blockbuster exhibition. From April to May, tickets cost £15 Monday to Thursday and £17.50 Friday to Sunday.
