Friends fans rejoice as a new Friends experience is coming to London’s East End this September.
FriendsFest, brought to you by Comedy Central UK, will take place from Wednesday 16th to Sunday 20th September at The Boiler House on Brick Lane. The venue will be transformed into the ultimate Friends experience, giving fans the chance to immerse themselves into the world made famous by Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe.
Comedy Central’s FriendsFest will feature a full scale set of Monica’s apartment, as well as an exhibition of original props and memorabilia. Fans will be able to enjoy a coffee at the Central Perk inspired café, have their pictures taken on the unmistakable orange sofa or by a replica of the iconic fountain.
Fans can also visit a pop-up “Rachel” blow dry salon, hang out in a New York themed courtyard, enjoy a game of foosball with friends or simply put their feet up and relax on a lazy boy watching episodes of the show.
Jill Offman, MD Comedy Central UK & SVP Comedy VIMN said, “Friends is hugely popular, with almost 5.9 million people tuning in to watch it on Comedy Central each month. As we celebrate news that Comedy Central will remain the exclusive TV home of Friends, it’s great to give something special to fans and what better way than with FriendsFest.”
This exciting news accompanies today’s announcement that the channel will remain the exclusive TV home of Friends in the UK for a further four years. Fans can prepare for Comedy Central’s FriendsFest by watching all 236 episodes of Friends in chronological order, weekdays from Monday 24th August.
Tickets to Comedy Central’s FriendsFest will be available from midday (12pm) today. They can be ordered via www.comedycentral.co.uk/friendsfest and cost £5.
