Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones - An exhibition featuring a tapestry inspired by the hit television series Game of Thrones has opened in Bayeux, in France's Normandy region. At almost 90 metres in length, the artwork was created in Northern Ireland with its material sourced from one of the last surviving mills in the country. Around 30 workers spent a total of 1,500 hours to make it. Before travelling to France, the tapestry was displayed at the Ulster Museum in Belfast. Northern Ireland was also one of the main filming locations for the series. The Game of Thrones tapestry will be displayed at the Hôtel du Doyen in Bayeux until December 31.
