The Mentalist’s original car and the period outfits of a Nanny from Hell await you!
Return to the Tripostal for the Festival Village Series Mania 2022. After being relocated to the open air in 2021 due to COVID, the nerve center of the Lille event is returning to its usual quarters.
As usual, this is where the autograph signings and fan meetings will take place. Successful writers Franck Thilliez, Joel Dicker and Michel Bussi are among the guests this year, like the team of SkamofWith family or that of Visitorsthe new series by Simon Astier.
But in addition to these highlights, the Tripostal is open to the public free of charge every day. Everyone can come and discover some very cool surprises, which will delight series eaters, starting with the original car that we see in Mentalist ! The 1973 semi-automatic DS20 Pallas driven by Patrick Jane was personally chosen by Simon Baker. American production returned this collector’s vehicle to France in 2015 after the end of the series. TF1 offered it to an association, which sold it at auction. Its new Belgian owner graciously lent it to the festival this year.
Another event not to be missed: the iconic outfits ofA nanny from hell are exhibited in the village throughout the week. The dresses, bathrobes and other improbable tunics worn by Fran Fine from 1993 to 1999 are to be seen in real life in Lille! Brenda Cooper, costume designerA nanny from hell, winner of the Emmy Awards in 1995, is behind these clothes that have contributed to the legend of the TV series. The exhibition is curated by Chris Brempel and Marina Sacco of Thary art & design.
The rest of your visit will be marked by a sumptuous LEGO exhibition dedicated to the series, which will delight young and old alike.
A VR experience is also offered to festival-goers, as is an Escape Room from which it will be very difficult for you to escape. You can also sit down to take a photo in the Throne of Game Of Thrones or admire a magnificent artistic exhibition devoted to the 20th anniversary of TheWire.
