FriendsFest is back, complete with Vegas chapel and Smelly Cat karaoke (and this time, it's not just in London)

Friends-season-10-014.jpg

This year has proved itself to be brilliantly fruitful in filling the Friends-shaped hole we've had in our lives since the show finished 12 years ago.

We've seen the cast reunite for a one-off TV special, heard which clothes Jennifer Aniston  snuck home from the set and learnt a few little-known fashion secrets from the series' costume designer.

And now, best of all, we have an entire FriendsFest TOUR to look forward to.

If you've ever wanted to hang out in Monica and Rachel's apartment, visit the Vegas chapel where Ross and Rachel got married, or sit on that orange sofa in Central Perk, then this is your moment.

There was a London-based pop up last summer, but this year, FriendsFest will stop off at six different locations over six weeks throughout August and September, and include all of the following...

A fully interactive display of Monica and Rachel's iconic apartment:

The Moondance Diner, where Monica worked her first job:

The Vegas Chapel of Love, where Ross and Rachel had their quickly-forgotten drunken wedding:

Central Perk, complete with the infamous orange sofa:

And best of all, a replica of Joey's sand mermaid, perfect for taking selfies:

There will also be an eighties themed silent disco, Smelly Cat karaoke, a foosball table and food and drink stalls.

Fancy a Friends-themed day? Of course you do. Tickets are priced at £24 each and will go on sale at 9am on Friday here, with passes available for the following dates and locations:

Haggerston Park, Hoxton, London: 24 Aug - 29 Aug
