Winter is coming to SFW 7

Game of Thrones seems to get stronger every season, so it would be a crying shame to miss out on a GOT panel for SFW 7. So to rectify that, the SFW organisers will be presenting Game of Thrones stars, Kerr Logan and Miltos Yerolemou, who also stars in the upcoming Star Wars VII release, to fill us in on their perception of the hit TV series.

There has been many of the various time lords from Dr Who appearing over the years, but for SFW 7 will be concentrating on the Doctors ladies. Catrin Stewart and Ellis George will be at the event in Pwllheli to discuss the other side of the Tardis so to speak.

SFW 7 will continue to feature and expand the various zones within the festival experience with authors, screening and comics a primary focus. SFW are blessed by a credible tranche of true pro’s, so in no particular order, these are the ones who are confirmed so far, Glenn Fabry, Dylan Teague, Boo Cook, Simon Davis, Adam Nevill, Stan Nicholls, Anne Nicholls, George Mann, Sam Stone, David J Howe, Raven Dane, Bryony Pearce, Una McCormack, Emma Newman and Perter Newman.

Outside of the main panels this year, SFW will be featuring BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Comic Zone, Author Zone, Screening Zone, Gaming Zone, Quizzes, Exhibits, Cosplay, Masquerade Ball, The incredible Area 51’s, 2016 Imaginarium, plus some live performances from Jethro Tull’s, Ian Anderson, Focus, Caravan as well as The Crazy World of Arthur Brown to name a few.
