The FRIENDS™ Experience: The One in Birmingham

Event Information

Event Details

Could we BE anymore excited?

Featuring a variety of nostalgia-packed, interactive sets including Monica’s kitchen and the iconic FRIENDS™ fountain, The FRIENDS™ Experience provides guests with plenty of opportunities to explore the show’s history and re-create their favourite scenes, such as peeking around Rachel and Monica’s purple door, relaxing in Chandler and Joey’s recliners or helping Ross with the infamous sofa pivot. Of course, no FRIENDS™ experience would be complete without paying homage to the sitcom’s famed coffee house, Central Perk, which will be fully recreated at the NEC Birmingham, complete with the legendary orange sofa. FRIENDS™ fans will also be able to take home a momento of their visit from The FRIENDS™ Experience shop where they will find a selection of exclusive merchandise.
