Fans of Derry Girls can now get a sneak preview of a new exhibition to be unveiled soon at a museum in Derry.
Some items to be showcased at the Tower Museum exhibition, which officially opens this July, are now on display at the Visit Derry information centre in Waterloo Place.
Those behind the exhibit hope it will boost local tourism.
Derry has already cashed in on the hit Channel 4 comedy with a number of tourist attractions on offer in the city and district.
The most famous of these is the Derry Girls mural that features the faces of the main cast on a large gable wall of Badger’s Bar on Orchard Street.
Plans for a new museum exhibit and new Derry Girls walking trail were confirmed following a meeting of Derry City and Strabane District Council in January.
The Hat Tricks Production show has been a massive success for Channel 4, winning Royal Television Society Awards, Irish Film and Television Awards and being nominated for BAFTAs.
The final episode of series three aired in May last year bringing the curtain down on the highly-acclaimed programme.
Museum curator Roisin Doherty said fans who may have been feeling a bit forlorn since the curtains closed on the series will be able to enjoy this “taster display” before the official launch of the new exhibit.
“This taster display is one of three different segments for the overall exhibition that will go on display at the Tower Museum in July,” Ms Doherty told BBC Radio Foyle.
“All of these pieces on display were loaned to us by Hattrick Productions and of course thanks to Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee.
“The full exhibition will open in July and all of us here who are big fans of the show are all really looking forward to it.”
Derry Girls is now available to watch to fans around the world on Netflix.Tags:
