What can you expect at FriendsFest 2020?

Like previous FriendsFest events, the 2020 tour will include both a set tour of the famous locations from the show and a variety of other fun Friends-themed activities.

The set tour experience, where you can visit all of the Friends’ famous apartments, practice your PIVOT! in a photo moment on the stairs and re-enact the iconic floating heads scene behind the door of Monica’s place, lasts about half an hour.

After the set tour you are free to explore the rest of the
site and watch your favourite Friends episodes on a big outdoor cinema screen,
visit the memorabilia exhibition and shop a whole bunch of Friends-themed
merch.

Friendsfest organisers recommend that you allow at least two
to two and half hours for your whole visit.  

The event will also have a range of Friends-themed dining
options on the day, so you’ll be able to tuck into Joey’s Pizza, browse Phoebe’s
Vegetarian Buffay or even get a slice of cheesecake from Mama’s Little Bakery.

What’s not to like? Photo ops – good. Nostalgic memorabilia – good. Plenty of chances to eat, drink and be merry whilst watching Friends? Gooood!
