    Could we BE any more excited about this Friends news?

    It’s been announced today that Comedy Central are taking their highly successful FriendsFest on tour around the UK – that’s right, the actual festival hooked around the greatest TV show of all time is coming to a city near you. 

    The “fest” – which will run from the 24th August to the 1st October – will head to six UK locations and will include the full scale replica of Monica and Chandler’s apartment. We are literally going to move in.

    Tickets are not yet on sale, but will be available for the following dates and locations:

    Haggerston Park, Hoxton, London – 24th August – 29th August

    Chiswick House and Gardens, London – 1st September – 4th September

    Hylands House, Essex – 7th September – 11th September

    Harewood House, Yorkshire – 14th September – 18th September

    Knebworth House, Hertfordshire – 20th September – 25th September

    Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire – 28th September – 1st October

    There will be a Central Perk style coffee shop and a blow out bar so you can really perfect that Rachel Green hairstyle what more could you ask for?!

    Here’s what we’re hoping will go down… 

    1.Gunther will be there to serve us coffee – look, it’s not like he’s had much work lately is it? 
    2.If not Gunther then Rachel, what? Jennifer Aniston’s just got married? Maybe she won’t be there then… 
    3.We’ll beat all our mates at foosball, did we mention there’ll be a foosball table, just like at Joey and Chandlers house? 
    4.We’ll get to take a look in Monica’s messy cupboard (this is not a euphemism)

    See all the Friends episodes we’re still applying to our own lives.

    5.You’ll spot ugly naked guy hanging out (literally) across the road from the apartment 
    6.There will be a chance to buy replicas of everything and we will turn our own homes into massive shrines… that’s not weird, is it? 
    7.The popularity of FriendsFest will spark a reunion series, or even just a reunion show, just give us something guys…
