One of Game of Thrones' most loved characters will swap Winterfell for Harrogate on Saturday, June 4, to perform a Guest DJ slot.

Kristian Nairn, better known to avid Thrones' fans as Hodor, will be bringing his EDM and commercial house music to The Viper Rooms tomorrow.

The Northern Irish actor, who stands at a massive 6ft 10in tall, has crafted a flourishing career as a DJ with his 'Rave of Thrones' gig.


For many fans, Kristian's appearance at The Viper Rooms may be tinged with sadness following the character's recent emotional death beyond the wall.

The simpleminded House Stark servant was torn apart by wights as he held the door of the cave's exit closed for Bran and Meera to escape.

It was quite possibly the saddest moment in the programme's history, since the Red Wedding, but fans will be hoping to see a happier Hodor tomorrow evening.

Fans of Wylis/Hodor/Kristian can book tickets for £5 on http://harrogate.theviperrooms.com/tickets/ but we can almost guarantee Bran Stark won't be allowed on the guestlist.
