FriendsFest: returning for a UK tour in September

The tour, which kicked off last week at Haggerston Park in London, opens at Chiswick House & Gardens in London today (1 September), running until 4 September, before heading to Hylands House in Chelmsford, Harewood House in Yorkshire, Knebworth House in Hertfordshire and Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, with all dates running across the rest of September. 

This year's FriendsFest features Monica and Rachel’s apartment and new fan experiences including the chance to re-create the iconic titles sequence, Central Perk, Monica’s Moon Dance Diner, Vegas Chapel of Love and an 80's silent disco.

Visitors will also be able to try their hand at 'Smelly Cat Karaoke', warbling to Phoebe’s musical masterpiece, or have a game of table football in Joey and Chandler’s apartment, before taking a trip to Last Vegas where they can share a romantic snap with their loved one in the Vegas Chapel of Love.

There will also be a whole host of other Friends-inspired activities including themed food stalls and cocktail bars available for guests.

Last year's event took place at The Boiler House in London for one week.
