Comedy Central UK has announced that following the success of the sold out summer FriendsFest tour, FriendsFestive will not only be returning to London but will be bringing some Friends Christmas magic to a brand new location, Blackpool Winter Gardens.

The event, produced in partnership with The Luna Cinema, celebrates all the best seasonal moments from the world’s favourite TV show. It’s a celebration of all things Friends where visitors can get together with their friends and immerse themselves in the world made famous by the hugely popular TV show.

FriendsFestive will include all the best festive experiences from last year, including giving fans the chance to recreate the titles in the show with a digital snowglobe photo op, and, of course, no holiday season would be complete without a visit to The Holiday Armadillo’s Grotto. Could this BE any more exciting?

FriendsFestive will be at Blackpool Winter Gardens from November 5-19.

More experiences include ringing Phoebe’s bell outside the mall and re-enacting the iconic Thanksgiving floating heads scene.

Channel your inner Monica and Ross

Fans can also channel their inner Monica and Ross as they grab a picture at the New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Disco.

FriendsFestive will also give visitors the chance to check out Monica’s apartment, Joey and Chandlers’ and Central Park, all dressed for the holiday season.

Festive food and drink

And you can get your festive fill with themed food stalls and Christmas cocktails as well as brand new and exclusive FriendsFestive merchandise.

Guests will also be able to kick back and relax while watching some of the best seasonal moments from the greatest TV show of all time.

Winter gardens

FriendsFestive will park up its sleigh in Blackpool Winter Gardens from November 5 - 19, before bringing the snowy celebration to Truman Brewery in East London from November 25 to December 19.

Fans will also be given the chance to pre-order some brand-new 2021 merch when they buy their ticket, to make sure they bag their favourite FriendsFestive goodies before they sell out!

Michael Williams, Managing Director of the Winter Gardens said: “We are delighted to be bringing a taste of one of the best-loved TV series of all time to Blackpool next year.

“FriendsFestive promises to be the perfect start to the Christmas season and we can’t wait for it to open in the home of entertainment.”
