FriendsFest tickets for the 2017 UK tour still available – dates, venues, prices and what it’s all about

THE ten years that followed the launch of TV sitcom Friends were a decade of hilarity and loves, as legions of fans became besotted with the six chums, an ugly naked guy and a very smelly cat.

And if you want to relive the Friends magic you’re in luck because a festival dedicated to the classic show is touring the UK this summer. Here are all the details…

What is the FriendsFest UK tour?

Last year FriendsFest sold out, and sold out fast.

Due to the phenomenal demand, Comedy Central UK have brought it back and this year it’ll be bigger and better than ever.

The festival – in partnership with The Luna Cinema – will include with brand new features like a full scale set of Joey and Chandler’s apartment, original memorabilia from the iconic show and new fan experiences.

Last year you were able to recreate the opening sequence on the iconic orange sofa and sing Smelly Cat karaoke.

There’s so much fun on offer, you might even get BAMBOOZLED!
