The 10 best things about Comedy Central's FriendsFest

The last time Friends came to London, Joey wore a big hat and Richard Branson turned up.

We’re not quite sure if the Virgin honcho is in town right now, or whether merchandisers expect sales of Union Jack headwear to spike, but Friends is now back in the capital having landed at the Boiler Room, Brick Lane for FriendsFest.

An already sold out extravaganza, Comedy Central UK is marking 21 years since the first episode of the classic sitcom by replicating major sets like Central Perk and Monica's apartment, and bringing a few props over too.

Knowing something about perks ourselves, we headed down to see it for ourselves and scoff some biscuits. Here’s all you need to know.

You can still win tickets to the event - just keep an eye on @comedycentraluk on Twitter and look out for #FriendsFest.

Viewers wanting to get into the mood for Comedy Central’s FriendsFest can watch episodes of Friends in chronological order, weekdays from 5pm on Comedy Central.
