FriendsFest Is Returning And We Couldn't BE More Excited

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but it doesn't look like Friends will ever be back on our screens, not with Matt LeBlanc AKA Joey Tribbiani saying "definitely never".

All is not lost though, as FriendsFest is making a comeback this year, and in the words of Chandler Bing, we couldn't BE anymore excited.

The set has had an update too, and you can now tour around Ross Geller's apartment, which he bought off Ugly Naked Guy.

The event will be touring the UK between July and September this summer, and will also be stopping off at a host of new different locations, including Glasgow, Newcastle, Brighton and Bristol.

Other attractions at Comedy Central's FriendsFest include Monica Geller's super tidy purple apartment, Joey and Chandler's flat (chick and duck not included) as well as the hallway where the gang ate cheesecake from the floor.

Of course, there is the beloved Central Perk coffee house and even original memorabilia from the series.There will also be the opportunity to recreate the titles. It doesn't look like there's going to Pheobe Buffay's apartment though.

No event would be complete without a bite to eat, and there will also be Friends-themed food stalls, which might serve up some of Monica's delicacies, and if you're lucky enough there could also be a slice of Rachel Green's English beef trifle. Yuck.


FriendsFest also has a cocktail bar, as well as a Friends quiz, which test whether you are actually a true fan.

Dates include:

Victoria Park, Glasgow - 6th to 15th July.
Castle Farm Fields, Newcastle - 20th to 29th July.
Heaton Park, Manchester - 3rd to 12th August.
Blaise Castle Estate, Bristol - 24th August to 2nd September.
Preston Park, Brighton - 7th to 16th September.
Kennington Park, London - 21st to 30th September.

You can sign up for presale tickets here, but be quick as you can no longer register after 27th March.

Tickets are available from 28th March at 10am, and will cost £27.50 each.
