A 'Game of Thrones'-Style Medieval Banquet Is Coming to Sydney

It'll be just like The Red Wedding — but with more ale and less murder.

A 'Game of Thrones'-Style Medieval Banquet Is Coming to Sydney

Winter is here, and while unfortunately, we will have to wait another whole year for the finale series of Game of Thrones, there is an event coming for Sydney that will tide fans over (at least temporarily). Call your banners and get ready for a medieval-style banquet in the vein of GoT from the team behind Beyond Cinema.

If, like Jon Snow, you know nothing, Beyond Cinema aims to create larger than life, immersive cinema experiences, notably entering the scene with its debut production The Titanic Experience, which happened on an actual ship with a crowd of 1000 people. But you can forget steamy car windows and any kind of dainty romance, as the collective's next offering is an immersive medieval-style banquet replicating the fascinating and often terrifying world of HBO's hit series that so many have come to depend on for meaning in life.

While many details of the event are still shrouded in mystery (much like the eventual outcome of the series), we can be assured that Beyond Cinema's usual flair will ensure a night of gruff entertainment. There are rumours there will be knights, a performing jester, medieval music, a meal fit for a king and many tankards of hearty ale.

Seeing as it's ominously titled the Red Wedding Banquet, we may also assume there will be some recreations of scenes from George R. R. Martin's saga. Here's hoping there's no regicide at this one.

The Red Wedding banquet will happen in Sydney sometime this year. We'll let you know when tickets go on sale or you can sign up for updates here
