Okay Friends fans... try not to freak out. But this September, Comedy Central is bringing you the experience of a lifetime in the form of FriendsFest. You'll have the chance to immerse yourself into the world made famous by Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe.
Okay. Now you can freak out.
From Wednesday, 16 - Sunday, 20 September, The Boiler House on Brick Lane will be transformed into a full scale set of Monica’s apartment, home to some of the best-loved scenes from the ever-popular series.
It's been 11 years since Friends ended. But it's been a solid fixture on our TVs ever since. I don't for a second believe that you would need ANY convincing in getting yourself down to London for this amazing experience, but just in case you do, here's 6 reasons why FriendsFest is going to be the best. Could we be anymore excited?
(This is me. In my car on the way to FriendsFest. See you there!)
Chill out on the couch in Monica's apartment
Sit yourself down in the place where Monica is always the host. Reminisce about the Thanksgivings, Christmases and numerous birthday parties the gang shared together and, for the love of God, do not move the green ottoman.
Re-enact all your favourite Friends scenes
Do it with friends, relatives, on your own or with strangers. Walk around the set and remember all of your favourite scenes: from the quiz in 'The One With The Embryos' to the giant poking device in... well, 'The One With The Giant Poking Device'. FriendsFest is a place free from judgement, where you'll be surrounded by like-minded fans who won't be sick of your Chandler Bing jokes.
Take a load off and grab some coffee at Central Perk
You heard me correctly - there will be a Central Perk inspired cafe at the exhibition and we promise, there won't be lipstick stained mugs or some ditsy waitress getting your order wrong... we think. Cross your fingers that you manage to grab the sofa strictly reserved for the six Friends and take a load off from all the excitement. Just, don't have too many espressos...
Take pictures with the iconic Friends props and memorabilia
What better way to remember your day than with a picture of yourself and your friends sat on the iconic orange sofa or by the fountain from the Friends title sequence. Or maybe you're a bit more chill and fancy a go in the La-Z-Boy E-cliner 3000. This is literally a Friends fan's dream, so make sure you put yourself in the place of the crazy Friends gang and take advantage of the opportunity!
Get yourself a 'Rachel' in the pop-up salon
For anyone who grew up watching Friends, Rachel Green was the ultimate style icon. Her clothes, shoes and hair inspired so many of us who wanted to be like the super fashionable Friends character. So treat yourself to a 'Rachel' in the pop-up salon that will be at FriendsFest and all your dreams will have been realised. Maybe don't follow her fashion history too precisely though...
Because as a Friends Fan, you can't afford to miss it!
Just think how many times you reference Friends in a week? I think mine must tally up into the hundreds. So if your mind can possibly cope with the overwhelmingly awesome FriendsFest you absolutely have to be there for this unique opportunity to show your loyalty to the best American sitcom of a generation.
