The 2017 event not only treats visitors to the best of the fest from previous years, including Monica’s apartment, Central Perk, Monica’s Moon-Dance Diner, Ross and Rachel’s Vegas Wedding Chapel and ‘recreate the titles’, but this year fans can also visit a full scale set of Joey and Chandler’s apartment complete with corridor leading to Monica’s and have the ultimate throwback photo at the gang’s high school prom.

Jane Sibbett said: ‘We can’t believe this event is in its third year and it just keeps getting bigger! Over 120,000 fans have visited FriendsFest this year which shows how much people love the show. We are so excited to be here and it’s incredible to see how popular the show is after almost 23years!’
