Pretenders to the Iron Throne will have the opportunity to stake their claim as ruler of Westeros this month as the iconic seat used in the hit TV show Game of Thrones will be coming exclusively to Ipswich.

On May 14 and 15, the Donalds Volvo dealership in West End Road will host the distinctive prop, pictured, on which people will be able to have their picture taken free of charge.

Remarkably, the dealership has secured the prop for the weekend in a one-off event.

Benjamin Grant, group marketing manager, said: “I was going back through Volvo’s Facebook feed and they did a pop-up shop at a Volvo event in Manchester with the throne.

“I just wrote to them asking if it was available for dealerships, and it was available for that weekend.”

In the popular show, which is shown on Volvo-sponsored channel Sky Atlantic the Iron Throne is constructed from the swords of vanquished lords.

The free event will allow people to come and have their pictures taken, and take part in a quest and competition, with members of the public encouraged to come along dressed as their favourite Game of Thrones characters.
