Winter is here: our very own Game of Thrones

It’s April, but there’s a definite chill in the air. No doubt you’ve reached in the back of your wardrobe for the first time since September to grab your favourite woolly jumper – because after all, winter is here.
The battle for the Iron Throne is about to reach its climax, and the long-awaited final season of HBO’s smash-hit Game of Thrones is almost upon us.
After seven fantastical seasons of marauding across the seven kingdoms of Westeros, the show’s main protagonists will face off in what began as a conflict for the Iron Throne but may end in a fight for the survival of all mankind.
Sydney and Melbourne-based fans of the show will get a unique chance this week to see if they are worthy of claiming the seat that has eluded so many – when the Telstra Discovery Stores at 246-260 Bourke St, Melbourne and 400 George Street, Sydney transform with a one-off Game of Thrones in-store event, complete with an Iron Throne from 11-14 April.
If you’re a fan of the show, this is probably as close as you’ll get to the Throne – without booking a return dragon-flight to King’s Landing – any time soon.
Once you’re in store, you can claim a photo on the Throne (and dress-ups are encouraged, obviously), and the good news is it doubles as a photo booth – meaning you can take home your very own #forthethrone souvenir, as well as a digital version to share with your friends (and enemies) on social media.
