In Photos: Friendsfest Arrives In London

After selling out within minutes of tickets going on sale, Friendsfest arrives in London, celebrating all things to do with the TV show.

Visitors to the six-day event in Haggerston Park can visit Central Perk coffee shop, where karaoke renditions of Smelly Cat take place, and sit on that famous sofa.

Elsewhere, fans can hang out in Monica and Rachel's apartment, recreated right down to the picture frame on the back of the door.

Central Perk gets a hipster makeover, Hackney-style.

The attempt at recreating Chandler's apartment feels somewhat half-hearted compared to Monica's apartment, but still makes a good photo opportunity.

Even the food and drink offerings are themed, with grub available from Monica's Moondance Diner (yes, complete with dancing waiters and waitresses — has anyone seen her left boob?).

Over at The Chick And The Duck Bar, cocktails have names such as The Geller Cup, Bing-A-Ling! and Pivot!

Phoebe's grandmother's cab even makes an appearance, parked right outside Central Perk:

Other activities at the festival include dressing up at Ross and Rachel's Las Vegas wedding chapel, a silent disco, live entertainment on the main stage, and a Friends merchandise shop selling posters, mugs, keyrings and the like.

Friendsfest takes place in Haggerston Park 24-29 August before moving to other venues around the country. Tickets have now sold out, but sign up on the website to hear about future events.
