The largest ever Spice Girls exhibition is coming to London this summer and it’ll spice up your life.
Say you’ll be there.
This July and August, the famous five will be taking over the Business Design Centre in Angel, Islington. There’ll be thousands of items of memorabilia on show, including a selection of the girls’ most iconic stage costumes from the 90s, as well as a bunch of themed events, such as dance classes and bus tours. (See more art exhibitions in London.)
The exhibition is set to be the biggest music exhibition in history – a truly spicy tribute to Scary, Sporty, Baby, Posh and Ginger. Follow the Spice Girls on their journey from band to brand, and discover how they reestablished the girl power movement and practically took over the world.
Alan Smith-Allison, event organiser and curator, joined forces with various Spice Girls collectors and designers, including Liz West, the Guinness World Record Holder for the world’s largest Spice Girls collection.
The original Spice Bus, which appeared in the 1999 hit ‘Spice World: The Movie’, will be making a special landmark appearance outside the exhibition*, while super fans will have the option to ride in their very own Spice Bus, on a specially curated tour run by the Big Bus Company. Fans can take a two-hour trip across London in a Union Jack-emblazoned open top bus, led by a Spice Girls expert. (And yes, who do you think they are? Of course there’ll be a suitable playlist for the journey.)
Location: The Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, Islington, N1 0QH. Nearest station is Angel. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: 28th July – 20th August 2018.
Price: Tickets start at £10 and you can get them here.

*After they finished filming the movie, the Spice Bus was neglected and left at the Island Harbour Marina on the Isle of Wight. Click here to make a donation to help restore the bus.
