Winter is so nearly here, guys. I mean, is it just us or has winter been coming for, like, ever?! Well, not to fear, your lives are about to get well and truly taken over by Game of Thrones hype. Fan or not, you’ll be inundated with paraphernalia, quotes, spoiler alerts in the office and, it turns out, a splash of G.O.T related events across the city…
Here are all the happenings we think you need to drag(on) yourself to… oh, and brace yourselves, puns are coming…
Winter isn’t coming. Why? Because judging by the baltic climates, sea of red cheeks and promises of (Jon) snow, it’s already darn well here. What is coming however is dinner, and a very special one at that as The Vaults play host to a Game of Thrones parody dinner. So, if you’re sitting comfortably then I shall Brienne…
An immersive event is happening, running from April 9 to June 2, corresponding with the eighth series of the popular fantasy, and will see food, theatre and comedy mixed together in this GOT parody in The Vaults. the adult-only interaction is set to be alive with nudity, violence and dragons… so just your typical weekend then, eh?!
Where: The Vaults Leake Street, SE1 7NN
Bend the knee! The throne of London immersive experiences has been usurped by none other than a Game of Thrones-themed rave. ‘Rave of Thrones’ is coming to Electric Brixton April 26th, which has the making of the perfect penultimate event to get fans ready for the upcoming series finale.
The event is set to transform the Brixton venue into a snapshot of George R.R. Martin’s Westeros with appearances from White Walkers, the Iron Throne, cast look-alikes, and plenty of performances.
The rave will take place on Friday April 26th
Where: Town Hall Parade, Brixton, SW2 1RJ
This Chiswell Street staple knows a thing or two about their feasting and whilst you’d normally expect to be delving into squirrel croquettes, served with hazelnut mayo, or squirrel pie with braised leg and shoulder, their menu of late has taken a slightly different turn. Courtesy of Game of Thrones’ finale, The Jugged Hare are putting on an immersive event in the private Josephine Room, where feasters will gorge on a five-course menu of hearty plates alongside the finest Dornish wines.
In true rustic, lay of the land way, you’ll venture through Game of Thrones dish highlights including Hot Pie’s wolf bread with smoked bone marrow butter; crispy kraken salad; pigeon pie cut with Valyrian steel; the wild boar that killed Robert Baratheon; Sansa’s favourite lemon cakes, glazed with a honey syrup; and Fire & Ice – a whiskey and chilli chocolate finale.
Let’s hope it doesn’t turn out like the Red Wedding, eh…
On Wednesday April 10th at 7.30pm
Where: 49 Chiswell Street, EC1Y 4SA
Wondering what to buy an avid G.O.T. fan? A huge hairy coat? A broadsword? Some of that blood stain removal spray? Or… how about a bottle of Game of Thrones themed whisky? A special collection features eight scotch whiskies which each relate to one of the iconic Houses of Westeros. There’s also a Night Watch special, giving fans a taste of the seven kingdoms, and beyond. The initiative is a tie-up between the Game of Thrones franchise, Diageo and HBO and is a great collectors’ item, or even better to sup as the drama ramps up.
