Good news Ross heads, Monica maniacs and Chandler fanatics – Friendsfest is returning to Heaton Park next month in celebration of the show’s 25th anniversary. Having visited in August 2018, this interactive event – which boasts intricately constructed sets from the show – was a huge success, attracting Friends fans from across the North to recreations of Monica and Chandler’s apartment for a flurry of photo opportunities. This year Friendsfest looks set to be even bigger, with brand new and exclusive activities and merchandise on offer for visitors. Ticket holders will find four new photo opportunity experiences including the Thanksgiving floating heads moment and the famous three wedding dress shot – plus, there will be the chance to take away your own 25th anniversary souvenir which is exclusive to Friendsfest 2019. Presented in partnership with Comedy Central UK and Luna Cinema, you’ll also find a selection of recognisable sets including Ross, Joey and Chandler and Monica’s apartments (complete with corridor), Central Perk, original memorabilia and the opportunity to recreate the show’s iconic fountain opening title sequence. They’ll even be a few wigs and props on hand for the perfect selfie moment. Could you be any more excited?
