25 years after Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross first appeared on TV screens across the world, fans can congregate at a range of nationwide celebration events for completely one-off experiences.

With a number of events already sold out, even more unique experiences have been announced to bring the anniversary extravaganza to all corners of the UK, arriving in Cardiff on Thursday 19th September. 

The Central Perk sofa is “going places!”  So, take a seat, friends, as we invite you and your BFFs to snap a pic on the iconic three-seater.  The must-see, comfy conversation starter will be found in some of the world’s most talked about destinations, including the Grand Canyon, the Empire State Building, The Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and countless others, until the end of September 2019.


In the UK, the National FRIENDS #SofaTour offers fans across the country the chance to sit in the famous seat and capture once in a lifetime photographs in front of iconic British landmarks.
