‘Winter is coming’ to Leeds this summer for Game of Thrones fans.

Leeds Central Library is celebrating the cult TV show and book series this Saturday by transforming a room into medieval market-style place.

‘Room 700’ will be the scene of a ‘Thrones and Tomes: Westeros is coming!’ event from noon until 4pm.

The seventh series of Game of Thrones started on Monday and fans will have the chance 
to discover more about the myths, legends, weaponry, books and real-life history 
that have inspired the hit fantasy.

Coun Debra Coupar, Leeds City Council’s executive member for communities said: “The return of a new season of Game of Thrones is always a huge occasion, and we are very excited to be hosting our very own event this Saturday.

“There are limited tickets for this event and we would ask people to book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”

Tickets are priced at £3, but there is the chance of free entry to the festivities if you come in costume. Will you go as one of the Lannisters, a member of House Stark or as one of the White Walkers?

Judges will also be keeping their eyes peeled for the best costume, with the winner crowned as the king or queen of Westeros.

Providing refreshments on the day will be Inkwell Arts, who will also be paying tribute to the show’s ‘The Wall’ in the form of a cake.

Room 700 is a multi-use arts space based on the first floor at Leeds Central Library. To book and secure your place at the event, please see www.ticketsource.co.uk/event/EMDJGD
