A Meeting of Ice and Fire Talks: Game of Thrones

Event Hosted by Kalium Bookstore

Join us the Sunday before Game of Thrones begins its final season for a day of talks, panels, screenings, quiz and more celebrating the cultural legacy of a series that has defined event television for almost a decade. The conference will be a space for fans, writers and experts to convene in mutual celebration and speculation; a great way of getting ready for the final visit to Westeros.
The day will be divided into two sessions, a DAYTIME TALKS (doors from 11am) session containing short lectures from academics and a variety of panel discussions and debates on key topics from the show (speaker details TBC), along with an annotated panel screening of key moments from the series to date. Here are the current panels:

  • Is Game of Thrones a feminist show?
  • Game of Thrones: Quality TV or swords and sandals soap opera?
  • Who should sit on the Iron Throne? And who will?
  • Annotated screening of key moments from the show

The second session is the EVENING QUIZ (doors from 6pm), a fiendishly difficult, winner-takes-all quiz challenging your Game of Thrones knowledge (TV only, I’m afraid) along with themed cocktails and a great atmosphere!
