A Friends Christmas festival is on the way and could we BE any more excited?

It feels awfully early to be talking about anything Christmas-related yet - especially since Hallowe'en hasn't even happened.

However, we couldn't resist sharing the news when we found out a Friends Christmas festival is headed to the UK.


Yes, that's right: get ready to shake your belly like a bowl full of jelly, as Comedy Central UK brings you a holiday-themed edition of the award-winning FriendsFest… FriendsFestive!

The festive Friends bonanza arrives in London this November, and will feature all of the most memorable (and fan favourite) sets - all dressed for the holiday season, naturally.

There will be new photo opportunities, exclusive merchandise - oh, and did we mention the  Holiday Armadillo’s grotto?

FriendsFestive will be parking up its sleigh at Truman Brewery, Shoreditch bringing a snowy celebration to Brick Lane from November 28  –  December 21.


Tickets cost £34.50 including booking fee and a festive drink - but you better be quick if you're planning on heading along, we reckon these tickets are going to sell out fast.

There are a number of other events happening across the globe to celebrate Friends' 25th anniversary.


FRIENDS fans keen to stock up on the latest merchandise can also head to the Central Perk Café at Primark Manchester, which features a New York inspired menu, exclusive branded products and an opportunity to get a photo on the sofa.

After visiting the Central Perk Cafe, customers can continue their experience in a FRIENDS shopping area, where they can find everything from clothing to mugs including a number of items exclusive to the Manchester store.

Finally, the most adventurous FRIENDS fans will even be heading across the pond where they can immerse themselves in their favourite show like never before, when ‘The One With The Pop-Up’ experience opens its doors in NYC itself.

From September 7, the exclusive New York-based experience lets fans revisit some of the series’ most iconic moments, complete with set re-creations, photo ops and of course, Central Perk!


Tickets may be sold out, but like Janice, you never know when we’ll be back…
