It’s been 25 years since Friends catapulted onto our TV screens giving us some of the most memorable moments and iconic one liners in television history, and to celebrate Comedy Central is bringing a BIGGER & BETTER FriendsFest back to Manchester.

FriendsFest is the chance for fans to immerse themselves in the world made famous by Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross, with FOUR new photo op experiences including the fan favourite Thanksgiving floating heads moment and the iconic three wedding dress shot.

As well as all of these new elements, the event will of course still feature the very best from previous years including Monica’s apartment, Joey and Chandler’s apartment complete with corridor, Central Perk, original memorabilia, PIVOT!, Recreate the Titles and Ross’s apartment.

Plus, visitors will be able to dress up in some of the most unforgettable outfits and don the best wigs before going on set for their ‘lights, camera, action!’ selfie moments.

There will also be a whole host of other activities including new Friends themed food stalls, a BRAND NEW cocktail bar, a Friends quiz and the chance to recreate the cardboard box Porsche scene which fans can take part in live on stage.

Fans will also be able to kick back and relax in the sunshine while watching some of the best moments from the TV show.

Last year, tickets sold out quickly so fans are urged to book fast to avoid disappointment.
