PIVOT! FriendsFest is back for a 25th anniversary tour – here’s how to get Manchester tickets


This summer Comedy Central UK is bringing back its award winning FriendsFest for a 25th anniversary tour, with brand new and exclusive activities – and it’s coming to Manchester first.

It’s 25 years since our six favourite TV friends catapulted onto our living room screens, giving us some of the most memorable moments and witty one liners in TV history. And fans can celebrate by immersing themselves in the world made famous by Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross.

This special anniversary edition event will tour four locations across the UK, kicking off at Heaton Park in August. Isn’t that just kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-on-your-neck fantastic?

All the Friends favourites from previous years will return, including Monica’s apartment, Joey and Chandler’s apartment complete with corridor, Central Perk, original memorabilia, PIVOT!, Recreate the Titles and Ross’s apartment.

Plus, you’ll be able to dress up in some of the most unforgettable outfits and don the best wigs before going on set for their ‘lights, camera, action!’ selfie moments.  

This year, visitors will also be treated to four new photo op experiences including the fan favourite Thanksgiving floating heads moment and the iconic three wedding dress shot.

There will be brand new and exclusive merchandise, and the event will also feature a limited edition digital photo experience for fans, offering the chance to take away your very own souvenir 25th anniversary memory.

There will also be a whole host of activities including new Friends themed food stalls, a brand new cocktail bar, a Friends quiz and the chance to recreate the cardboard box Porsche scene which fans can take part in live on stage.

Fans will also be able to kick back and relax in the sunshine while watching some of the best moments from the hit TV show, which remains hugely popular with over six million viewers tuning in to watch it on Comedy Central each month.

Last year, tickets sold out quickly so fans are urged to book quickly to avoid disappointment.

FriendsFest will come to Heaton Park from 2nd – 18th August 2019. Fans have until midnight on 12th March to sign up for pre-sale tickets, which will be available to them from 10am on 13th March. General on-sale will commence on 15th March. Tickets cost £29 including booking fee.
