Game of Thrones exhibition heading to the UK

Costumes, sketches and storyboards set to be on show

A Game of Thrones exhibition is set to open in the UK tomorrow to mark the release of season six on DVD and Blu-ray.

Game of Thrones season 7 is scheduled to hit screens by summer 2017, with seven episodes set to air.

The exhibition will be opening at 135 Bethnal Green Road tomorrow (November 11) with a selection of items from the HBO series set to be on show. These include chainmail, embroidery and the jewellery worn by ‘Mother of Dragons’ Daenerys Targaryen.

Sketches and storyboards from the show’s creators will also be on show, as well as costume designs and variety of fan-produced art. The fan-art was selected from a UK wide competition by the exhibition organsiers with 10 pieces selected by Isaac Hempstead Wright who plays Bran Stark. According to Time Out, the exhibition will be on for a total of four days.

Speaking of season seven showrunners David Benioff and Daniel Weiss told UFC Unfiltered podcast on July 6,”We don’t have an air date yet, but this year will probably be a little bit later.”

They continued, “We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘Winter is here’ – and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes any more. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.”

Season seven could also see the return of a key character, after the actor was reportedly seen on set. Joe Dempsie – who plays Gendry in the Game of Thrones series – was last seen at the end of season 3, after he sailed away in a rowboat in order to avoid Melisandre and her plans to sacrifice him.

Game of Thrones has yet to welcome Gendry back to the TV show but according to Watchers on the Wall (via Digital Spy), Dempsie has been spotted on set in Spain and will make his on-screen return where he left off – Dragonstone.
