Game of Thrones Season 5 World Premiere To Be Held in Tower of London

Sky Atlantic today announced that the world premiere for Game of Thrones will be held this year in London for the very first time! And it will be taking place in a very special, atmospheric and historic location of the Tower of London. Director of Sky Atlantic in the UK, Zai Bennett said “I am delighted we will be hosting the World Premiere for this epic show at the Tower of London. I can’t think of a more fitting venue to give what promises to be another unmissable series its big launch.”

The World Premiere, on the evening of 18th March, will welcome a host of Game of Thrones stars, and marks the first time that the world premiere has been held in Europe. Since launching in 2011, Game of Thrones has become a bona fide TV phenomenon, keeping viewers guessing with a string of headline-making twists and turns and, as is tradition, the producers are keeping tight-lipped about what’s to come. Respecting the impenetrable cloak of secrecy that shrouds the show, there couldn’t be a more fitting venue than the high-security home of the Crown Jewels, one of the world’s most famous fortresses, to showcase the opening episode of season five for the first time anywhere to an invited audience from Sky’s home markets in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Italy.

In addition, Sky Atlantic will be offering a chance for 25 lucky fans to win a pair of tickets to the premiere. Details of the competition will be announced soon, and more information will be available via

Sky TV and NOW TV customers who have missed – or want to revisit – the series to date can catch up ahead of the arrival of the new, fifth season with Game of Thrones S1-4 TV Box Sets available On Demand with Sky and NOW TV from 1 March.
