A celebration of the popular 90’s sitcom, Friends, is coming to Manchester for the very first time.

The festival will take place in Heaton Park, Prestwich between the 4th and 13th August and will feature official memorabilia, props and sets from the show.

Fans will be able to explore full sized sets of Central Perk, Monica’s Apartment, Joey and Chandler’s flat, Monica’s Moon-Dance Diner and Ross and Rachel’s Vegas Wedding Chapel.

There will also be the opportunity to recreate the show’s iconic title sequence, pose for photos with the orange sofa and test your knowledge with the ultimate Friends quiz.

The event will even feature a big screen, showing Friends clips and content to view whilst you tuck in to food and drinks from themed street food stalls.

This is the festival’s third anniversary in the UK and is touring the country visiting Sheffield, Cardiff, Oxfordshire, Essex and London as well as Manchester.

Tickets are priced at £26 and go on sale on Friday 24th February but a pre-sale will take place at 10am on 22nd February which fans can register for by visiting the FriendsFest website.
