Music and Fashion fans alike are poised to unleash their inner Spice Girl this July and August at #SpiceUpLondon – The Spice Girls Exhibition. A celebration of, and tribute to, the biggest girl-group of all time, #SpiceUpLondon – The Spice Girls Exhibition promises to be the biggest exhibition of its kind in history.

Taking place at the Business Design Centre in Angel Islington, London from July 28 to August 20th, #SpiceUpLondon will be showcasing thousands of items of memorabilia, alongside hundreds of the Fab Five’s iconic stage costumes, some of which have not been publicly displayed since they were first worn by the Spice Girls in the 90’s.

In addition to displaying merchandise from around the globe, ranging from the rare and unseen to the peculiar and unusual, the exhibition will be showcasing just how significantly and successfully the Spice Girls went from band to brand on a scale that truly took over the world.

The exhibition will be the centerpiece of a whole host of events that aim to do exactly what the hashtag says; Spice up London! From dance classes to bus tours #SpiceUpLondon plans to pay the biggest tribute to the most exciting girl group phenomenon the world has ever seen.

Alan Smith-Allison, the event organizer 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.”

Mega fans travelling up to London have the opportunity to make a day of it and travel to the exhibition in style as #SpiceUpLondon have teamed up with the Big Bus Company to offer a unique two-hour panoramic tour of London. Leaving and returning from the venue twice daily, fans will be whisked around the city on a special Union Jack-emblazoned open top bus bringing together the iconic landmarks of London and highlighting particular areas of interest for Spice Girls enthusiasts. Featuring a tour guide clued up on all things Spice Girls, fans will feel like they have been transported onto the ‘Spice Bus’.

And speaking of the Spice Bus itself, in what is sure to be a highlight of the event, the original Spice Bus which appeared in the smash hit 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.

After filming on the movie finished, the bus suffered years of neglect and is currently situated at the Island Harbour Marina on the Isle of Wight. The current owners of the bus are undertaking restoration work to restore the bus to its former glory, bringing it back in its prime to take pride of place outside the exhibition, and 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.
