If you're a real Friends fan, you'll know how Janice's iconic laugh came about, you'll have spotted this really weird moment during Rachel's date with Joshua, and you'll know exactly how much the cast makes from re-runs (it's eye-watering).

But if you're a real, real Friends fan, you'll be hitting up FriendsFest this year to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary. That's right - the show is now a quarter of a century years old. But, more importantly, FriendsFest is back!! And it'll be bigger than ever.

Some of the most iconic sets from the show will be recreated for fans across the UK, touring four locations including London, Bristol, Manchester and Milton Keynes. From the 2nd August - 29th September 2019, you'll be able to walk around some of the amazing sets - like Monica's apartment - and there are plenty of opportunities for photos. This year, you'll be able to take snaps of the scenes that you wish to recreate - whether that's Phoebe, Rachel and Monica in wedding dresses, the crew enjoying coffee on the Central Perk sofa, or that floating head scene.

And that's not all. There's also a Friends-themed bar, food stalls and a quiz on the show so that you can really release your inner Friends geek.

The dates are as follows:

  • Manchester, August 2 to August 18
  • Bristol, August 23 to September 1
  • Milton Keynes, September 6 to September 15
  • London, September 20 to September 29

Tickets cost just £29 including a booking fee and will go on sale Friday 15th March.

Set a reminder, because this is going to be one epic day out.
