Just over a week and a half for now, the second annual Titancon convention will be taking place in Belfast. Last year’s event was a big success, and this year’s will be no different by the looks of it—the coach tour of shooting locations has already sold out, but memberships to the Saturday event remain, while Friday’s Culture Night (free entry) should be good fun. Among guests to this year’s Titancon will be actors Ron Donachie (Ser Rodrik Cassel), Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel), Kristian Nairn (Hodor), Art Parkinson (Rickon Stark), and Aimee Richardson ((Princess Myrcella Baratheon) from the cast, as well as storyboard artist William Simpson, and a host of extras from the series who’ll share the kinds of stories only extras can tell. And, by the looks of the program, a whole lote more will be going on. Like the raffle, in which George R.R. Martin and his wife Parris are donating quite a few items.
If you’re planning on going, or even just considering it, do drop by the Brotherhood without Banners forum where you’ll find a general Titancon thread as well as a very handy coordination thead to help people with ride or taxi sharing, hotel check-in, and so on.
(For those wondering, Linda and I won’t be there in person due to work obligations, but we’ll be there in jealous spirit. There’s always next year…)
