FriendsFest Returns To The UK To Celebrate The Show's 25th Anniversary

Ever fancied performing your own rendition of 'Smelly Cat' in the middle of Central Perk, or attempting to manoeuvre a sofa up a tricky flight of stairs? Perhaps you'd rather chase a chick and a duck around Joey and Chandler's apartment (animals not included)?

Well, now's your chance because Comedy Central is bringing FriendsFest back to the UK to celebrate the 25th anniversary of beloved sitcom Friends.

The exhibition will enable you to relive some of the best-remembered scenes - so if you fancy sitting on Monica's comfy couch, don't forget your wedding dress.

Or what about bursting through Monica's front door asking the inevitable 'Could I BE wearing any more clothes?'

OK, I'll stop now.

The travelling festival is bringing full scale sets and props from the show to give Friends fans the ultimate in unforgettable experiences.

Ticketholders can check out life-size models of Joey and Chandler's apartment, and Monica and Rachel's too. And of course Central Perk is also part of the fest, with every single detail having been signed off by Warner Bros., right down to the shades of paint used on the walls. Authenticity - we're here for it.

Alongside the various set-ups from the show, this year you can also expect a new cocktail bar and themed food stalls. They're even bringing the Thanksgiving floating heads and a quiz... and did someone say cardboard boxes shaped like a Porsche? I think they may have.

If all that wasn't enough for you - Comedy Central will also have plenty of original memorabilia from the set on display.

According to the Metro, there's also the possibility of some very familiar faces turning up. Wanna be there? Why wouldn't you?

The exhibition will be running all summer across the UK, starting at Manchester's Heaton Park on 2 August through to 18 August. Consider me in attendance.

The festival will then go to Bristol's Castle estate on 23 August until 1 September, before moving on to Milton Keynes's Willen Lake between 6 September and 15 September. The grand finale will be in London's Kennington Park starting on 20 September and ending on 29 September.

And since you won't want to let it slip your mind (just like the time Chandler forgot to write down Joey's audition), general tickets go on sale on 15 March (Friday) and will set you back £29 ($37). Money well spent if you ask me.

Time to get the fellow fans together and rehearse our poses. Are you with me or are you with me?
