It is now in the heart of Lille, place Rihour (and no longer in the premises of the Triporteur) that festival-goers meet to discover the free activities of the Village Festival by Crédit Mutuel (until September 1, from 12 p.m. at 21h).
Designed as a gathering place, this is where series fans will meet for fan club sessions (signings, meetings, etc.) with the castings of Tomorrow is ours, Here it all begins and Such a Great Sun, but also with comedians Kyan Khojandi, Agnès Hurstel, Alex Ramirès or Nora Hamzawi. Even the former Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, will come to take a look!
What will certainly excite festival-goers at first glance are the eternal decorations recreated, to take a picture of themselves on the sofa of Friends, next to Dexter or a vessel of The Mandalorian.
But beyond that, other stands await you, such as a virtual reality space where VR headsets will be loaned to you to discover unique programs. Games and exhibitions also animate the entire course of the village. And as a final bouquet: a special Escape Game dedicated to Legends Office, which will allow you to take yourself for Malotru for the time of an immersive experience, a high-risk mission accompanied by an actor or actress for a total immersion in the world of French intelligence services …
And also: a Comedy Club night (Friday night), a superhero Cosplayers contest (Saturday), dance lessons and karaoke (Monday), a blind test (Wednesday) and even a chess tournament (Sunday) … because The Lady’s Game, obviously !
