Talks are also underway to bring Hodor actor, Kristian Nairn to the event. Tickets have just been released for the festival which takes place on Sunday, May 20 at Quex Park, Birchington.
Gerald McCarthy, who has also organised the Southeast Airshow and Sci-fi By The Sea events, said “If you or anyone you know is a fan of this series, you need to put this date in your diaries.
“Our jousters have appeared in the series and will be taking on the fictional houses of Stark and Lannister, our archers have trained some of the cast, there’ll be authentic medieval reenactment teams that have performed for The Queen.
“We’ll have replica swords as used by Ayra Stark, Jamie Lannister and Jon Snow, replica shields and banners from houses that feature, lots other props from the show, white walkers on horseback, a 16ft walking dragon, wolves and ravens, and of course people will be able to take their place on the Iron Throne, a carefully replicated masterpiece that people will simply love.
“The interest in the event has been phenomenal, and we’d urge those interested to book as soon as possible to avoid missing out on what promises to be a great day.
“Although the series has a fairly adult theme, we’ve made sure it’ll be family-friendly, so if people want to bring the kids along this won’t be an issue.”
