The multi award-winning show returns for its eighth and final season this month, and to celebrate, the famous Iron Throne is going on tour!
Game of Thrones fans from all over the UK and Ireland will get the opportunity to see TV’s most fought-after chair throughout April on the ‘7 Kingdoms Tour’, which will be taking to Dublin, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, London, Cardiff and finishing in Birmingham.
Brummie fans will have their chance to grab a picture with the iconic throne when it makes its way to the Bullring on Friday 26th April and Saturday 27th April 2019. And for those of you that haven’t been following the show, you may just want to bag a selfie anyway!
The event is completely free – but be prepared to queue!
Speaking ahead of the final season, Sky’s Director of Programmes Zai Bennett said:
“With one of the greatest shows of television’s golden era coming to its end, we wanted to give fans something special to remember it by.
“The 7 Kingdoms Tour will do just that with fans getting the chance to experience what it feels like to sit on the Iron Throne before the eventual crowning moment at the end of the season.”
While many of us are still in denial about the show finishing, there’s certainly no denying the immense hype around it. So, what can we expect from the final season? Who will end up in the Iron Throne? And most importantly… where can we watch this epic final showdown?
Game of Thrones season eight will originally air on HBO on Sunday 14th April, and then on Sky Atlantic the following day in the UK, Monday April 15th – consider this your advanced warning for Monday morning internet spoilers!
The plot details of the final season have been kept tightly under wraps, and while sneak-peek trailers have caused much speculation as to what might happen, there are rumours that multiple endings have been filmed to truly throw us off the scent.
What we do know is that the series will consist of six episodes. Although the episode count has decreased, the runtime has been extended, with the series finale running an hour and 20 minutes.
As for who will eventually take the thrown? That hotly-contested conclusion remains undetermined for the time being – even more reason to tune in on April 15th at 9pm on Sky Atlantic to find out how things unravel!
