Don’t miss the stunning Game of Thrones White Walker embroidery at Bankfield Museum. Featuring a formidable White Walker, the work is over 17 feet wide and was originally created for HBO as a backdrop to mark the eagerly awaited release of Games of Thrones series five on DVD.

The highly detailed work will be on display until Saturday 10 September and features imagery from one of the most intense battle scenes in TV series history – the massacre of Hardhome (Series 5 episode 8).

The embroidery took over 5,000 hours to complete using a wide range of textile and mixed media materials, creating a one-off piece that showcases the artistry of hand embroidery and textile design in an impressive and imposing way.
