Yes, we’re still torn up about the fact that Central Perk is no longer a thing, even after 11 years. It never gets any easier.
But this summer Comedy Central UK are bringing “a touch of New York chic to London’s trendy East End” as their hugely successful FriendsFest is coming back to the UK for round two and now everything is alright in the world. Various locations across the country will be transformed into the purple dream that is/was Monica’s apartment for fans to explore and immerse themselves into the world made famous by the famous five.
There will also be a Central Perk-inspired cafe as well as a pop-up blow dry salon where you can go get yourself a “Rachel”. (Just don’t ask for a Demi Moore - learn from Monica’s mistakes!) There will also be a foosball table to satisfy your competitive side for a round of Joey and Chandler’s fave game (no chick included - soz), and a La-Z Boy incase you just want to chill out and watch a few episodes.
There will also be a cool exhibition of original props and memorabilia. We're hoping that that memorabilia will include the giant poking device and Joey's blue lipstick.
FriendsFest returns to the UK on the following dates:-
Hillsborough Park, Sheffield: 7th July – 16th July
Bute Park, Cardiff: 21st July – 30th July
Heaton Park, Manchester: 4th August – 13th August
Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire: 18th August – 27th August
Hylands House, Essex: 1st September – 10th September
Clissold Park, London: 15th September – 24th September
