Spice up your life! Spice Girls exhibition coming to London in July
This is for the die hard Spice Girls fans.
A celebration of, and tribute to, the biggest girl group of all-time is coming to London. #SpiceUpLondon - The Spice Girls Exhibition will be taking place at the Business Design Centre in Angel Islington this coming July.
The exhibition will be showcase thousands of items of memorabilia, alongside hundreds of the group's iconic stage costumes, some of which have not been publicly displayed since they were first worn by the Fab Five in the 90's.
Showing just how significantly and successfully the Spice Girls went from band to brand, the exhibition will be the centrepiece of a whole host of events that aim to "Spice up London".
Alan Smith-Allison, the event organiser and curator said:
"I have joined together with other Spice Girls collectors and designers from around the world, including the Guinness World Record holder, Liz West. It’s been amazing to be able to share this passion with others, but above all it has allowed me to create this collection of iconic Spice Girls history.
"#SpiceUpLondon has been a long time in the making, but it has grown beyond even my hopes for it. The interest in the exhibition has been massive and I can’t wait to show off what we are achieving. The London exhibition looks set to be the biggest music exhibition ever and it continues to grow with new events and exhibits being added every day."
And not only will fans be able to look at memorabilia associated with the Spice Girls, they'll be able to ride it... sort of.
In what is sure to be a highlight of the event, the original Spice Bus, which appeared in the 1999 Spice Girls blockbuster Spice World: The Movie, will be making an extra special appearance, proudly on display as an iconic landmark outside the #SpiceUpLondon Exhibition.
However, the bus suffered years of neglect after filming on the movie had finished. It is currently situated at the Island Harbour Marina on the Isle of Wight and the owners of the bus are undertaking restoration work to restore the bus to its former glory.
The bus will take pride of place outside the exhibition and the organisers are inviting fans to become part of Spice Girls history by donating to #RefurbTheBus and having their name adorned on a plaque within the Spice Bus. You can donate to the restoration project here.
