Friday 28 May 2004 was a very dark day in television history, and many of us are still mourning the loss of our six favourite friends; we’re talking about Rachel Green, Ross Geller, Joey Tribbiani, Monica Geller, Chandler Bing and Phoebe Buffay of course. It’s been over a decade since the six friends graced our screens in probably the most successful and iconic sitcom in history, Friends.
Now, the television broadcaster Comedy Central, which is the home of Friends in the UK has announced its greatest Friends event ever. Comedy Central’s Friendsfest will take place from Wednesday 16 September to Sunday 20 September and will give Friends fans the ultimate behind the scenes experience, allowing them to explore a full scale set of Monica’s apartment and even grab a coffee in Central Perk.
The event, which will be held in the Boiler House on Brick Lane, will include a full scale set of Monica’s apartment, props and memorabilia from the original series, a replica of Central Perk, and ticket holders will be given full reigns to explore the entire set at their leisure.
Make sure to bring your camera along to the event and get a photograph of you and your friends on the iconic orange sofa in Central Perk, or standing in front of the fountain from the opening credits of the series. You will even have the chance to visit the onsite pop-up hairdressers and request the ever-so-90’s ‘Rachel’ blowdry.
Tickets for he event are selling out fast, so make sure to check out the Comedy Central Twitter feed for more information.
