Get festive with Friends by celebrating its 25th anniversary in London

Ever wondered how it would feel to recreate every iconic scene from ‘the world’s favourite TV show’? Well, now you don’t have to because Friends Festive is giving you the chance to do just that.

Taking place at the Truman Brewery in vibrant Shoreditch, the month-long celebration of the beloved sextet offers diehard fans the chance of a lifetime to be the cast of Friends for a day, supplied with rooms recreated as sets from legendary episodes.


With Thanksgiving right around the corner, there’s no better way to pay homage to the holiday other than reenacting the floating heads scene, peeking through the side of the big purple door of Monica’s apartment.

Dance around like Rachel did in the title scene with the unforgettable song, ‘I’ll Be There For You,” playing in the background. Umbrellas and snow are provided to encapsulate the fun spirit of winter.
