Nerds in Public: We're off the see the Iron Throne at the PNE

How many Nerd HQ members out there watch Game of Thrones?  Well this year, Westeros will be travelling to the PNE.  Us nerds will gather to view this exhibit together.  Meet outside the main front gates to the PNE (corner of Hastings & Renfrew) at 6:30pm, we will go and view the exhibit as a large, boisterious nerdy and geeky group.   (Please arrive no later than 6:45pm if you wish to join the group as we will enter the PNE at that time)

After the exhibit, you are on your own!  Continue to hang out with Nerd HQ members as you see fit or go off and do your own thing.  There is tons of stuff to see at the PNE. 

PLEASE NOTE: YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PURCHASING OF YOUR OWN TICKET TO THE PNE.  TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE OR AT THE DOOR.  NERD HQ IS NOT PURCHASING TICKETS FOR ITS MEMBERS.

FROM THE PNE WEBSITE: The Fair will be the only location within the Pacific Northwest where you can enter the enchanted world of Westeros as part of the Game of Thrones travelling Exhibition. Presented by HBO®, the Exhibition will feature a current perspective on the show, focusing on key places, characters and relationships from season 3.

Free of charge, the fully immersive Exhibition will transport fans into the world of the show via a collection of nearly 100 original artifacts from pivotal scenes in seasons 1, 2 and 3, plus select pieces from the current fourth season.

Among the artifacts that will be showcased are original costumes, props, armour and weapons including iconic artifacts such as model dragons and eggs; weaponry comprising of crossbows, daggers, spears, hatchets and swords; crowns and headdresses; jewelry; books, letters and maps; House banners; storyboards and much more!

The Exhibition will also offer fans an all new, fully immersive, interactive virtual reality experience that will place them within the world of Westeros, and a photo opportunity on the coveted Iron Throne.

    Thanks for hosting! :)

    Thank you Tara. This timing issue was a concern.

    So here is the deal. The exhibit is very popular, which means its been pretty busy. The spots during the day have been basically full from earlier in the day as you can reserve spots. So if you are planning on coming, beaware if you want more chances of being able to get in, you need to come alot earlier in the day to stand in line to reserve. If you are not able to come till after work later in the day, theres a big chance you might not be able to get in. Ill be there for sure with a sign @ the entrance area at the exhibit.

      I will be going early in the day and reserving as many of the tickets as they will allow.

    U can take stills and film! Just don't reach out to touch the props. No book about exhibit was sold in shop.

    Hey everyone! So the PNE opened today and the exhibit sounds awesome. Unfortunately, I will now be out of the country on the 27th, so Tara has agreed to take over hosting duties and she will be at the front entrance at 6:30pm with a sign. So no Daenerys costume to watch for. :) Have fun everyone!
