Fans can expect to meet actors from the show, take part in autograph and photo sessions, stroll through themed market stalls and street traders, and watch Q&A panels with special guests. And this year’s headliner will be Gemma Whelan, who played fan favourite Yara Greyjoy, Queen of the Iron Islands and older sister of Theon Greyjoy, from series two to eight.

Gemma can currently be seen in BBC’s Gentleman Jack, and has previously appeared in Upstart Crow with David Mitchell. Plus recently a memorable recurring role in acclaimed series The End Of The F****g World on Netflix.

Organisers are yet to confirm the full guest list, but if last year’s convention is anything to go by, fans can expect to see some of the White Walkers along with residents of Kings Landing, Westeros and across the narrow sea.

Tickets are available from Fever and are priced at £17 per person. Get yours here.
