A Game Of Thrones Festival Is Happening This Month

Game of Thrones fan? Of course you are, or you wouldn't have clicked. Are you missing the show? Does your week feel a bit flat as you know you've got no new episode to look forward to?

Well, what if I told you that a GOT festival is happening and it's actually taking place in real-life Winterfell? Seriously.

If you're pining for the show following the end of season seven, then you can go and live it out by hanging with cast members, meeting some direwolves and firing some arrows.

Yes, it's shamelessly geeky but it also looks absolutely immense. There's a long wait for the eighth and final season, so this is definitely the perfect way to fill the void.

The Winterfell Festival is held inside the 820-acre walled Castle Ward in County Down, Northern Island, which has been used as a filming location in the show.

Better yet, Ser Meryn Trant (Ian Beattie) and Bowen Marsh (Michael Condron) will be there, offering walks and talks around the area. They'll also probably be happy to share a few stories about what goes on behind the scenes.

There will also be some theatrical re-enactments and live music.

As well as the chance to meet two of the original Stark family direwolves - Grey Wind and Summer - there will also be jesters and falcon flights within the tournament ring.

And you can feast like you're one of the Lannisters, with a hog roast and venison pies all washed down with plenty of cider and ale.

The one-day festival takes place on Sunday 24 September and tickets start at a bargain £22.50 ($30) for adults.

You can find out more, and buy tickets here. See you there.
