Oh. My. God! FriendFest Returns To London This Summer

Oh. My. God. Friendsfest is coming back to London this summer.

The homage to the beloved TV sitcom has already made a few appearances in the capital in recent years, including a Christmas special. This summer, it's coming to the new location of Clapham Common, as part of a UK-wide tour.

The event gives fans a chance to immerse themselves in the world of Friends, visiting replicas of the sets. Monica's apartment, Joey's apartment, the corridor between them, and of course Central Perk coffee shop are all in situ, ready for photo opportunities.

Certain scenarios from the series are also recreated for photoshoot purposes, including the Thanksgiving 'floating heads', the 'pivot!' scene with Ross's sofa, and Joey layering up all of Chandler's clothes. No lunging!

There's also a chance to recreate the title scenes, with umbrellas provided for you to pose with your pals. Friends-themed food and drink is available to buy (we're hoping Monica's Moonshine Diner makes a return), and to enjoy while you kick back in the sunshine (hopefully) and watch classic episodes on a giant screen.

FriendsFest comes to Clapham Common between 26 June and 12 July 2020, before moving onto Bristol, Manchester and Milton Keynes. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on 6 March, or sign up to the mailing list by midnight on 3 March to access pre-sale at 10am on 4 March.
