Working closely with Luna Cinema, Comedy Central and Warner Bros, The Persuaders designed and built the main sets for the new touring FriendsFest - a celebration of the iconic Friends TV Series.
The Persuaders have faithfully recreated Monica and Rachel's New York apartment as a 'film set' as well as building a faithful recreation of the exterior and interior of Central Perk. With Warner Bros and Comedy Central both keen to keep as true to the original as possible, this project was research-heavy but with plenty of Friends 'super-fans' on the team it became a labour of love!
The festival site also includes a stage playing clips from the shows, a recreation of the Title Sequence, a 'Vegas Wedding Chapel' for fans to recreate the infamous Ross and Rachel wedding scene and a Silent Disco where you can learn the hysterical New Years Eve routine.
With tickets selling out in under a week, the site will be packed with fans and the festival goes on tour across the UK from end of August till the beginning of October.
The tour, which kicked off last week at Haggerston Park in London, opens at Chiswick House & Gardens in London on the 1 September running until 4 September, before heading to Hylands House in Chelmsford, Harewood House in Yorkshire, Knebworth House in Hertfordshire and Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
