Hosted by Made In Chelsea and Celebrity Big Brother star Ashley James, the Spice Girls exhibition’s VIP launch party will take place on Friday 27th July. Much like the exhibition itself, the launch evening promises to be a ‘Girl Power’ Spectacular! A raft of influential British females have been invited to attend the red carpet launch and will be creating a carnival theme for fans, with street performers, dance troops and of course the gorgeous Ashley James welcoming guests and speaking to fans.
Ashley says; “It’s such an honour to be hosting the red carpet launch evening of the #SpiceUpLondon Spice Girls Exhibition. Girl Power is so relevant in today’s society so I am excited to be the one that gets to welcome a host of female stars and VIP guests (as well as the odd Spice Boy) to the biggest music exhibition in London this year. I can’t wait to meet some of the fans and find out what they make of the launch evening and to have them involved in the excitement. It’s going to be an incredible evening – all the glitz and glamour of a Red Carpet launch with of course that all important Spice Sparkle. Let’s #SpiceUpLondon!”
In addition to the Exhibition, which promises to be the biggest of its kind in history showcasing thousands of items of memorabilia alongside hundreds of the group’s iconic stage costumes, there will be a number of special events taking place around the city throughout the exhibition’s London residency.
#SpiceUpLondonhave teamed up with the legendary Pineapple Dance Studios to offer exclusive and unique Spice Girls inspired dance classes where both adults and children can get involved and learn the dance routines from some of the most iconic Spice Girls performances.
Priced at just £20 for adults and £15 for kids, they promise to be a lot of fun.
#SpiceUpLondon will also be taking over the O2 Academy Islington for a string of girl power nights during the four-week exhibition! The events will kick off on 28th July, with a launch party as they team up with Club De Fromage, London’s biggest pop and fancy-dress night for a special Spice Girls themed night of the classic dance floor anthems, mayhem and silliness.
The fun continues on Monday 30th July when Wannabe – The Spice Girls Show hits London for the first time. It’s the UK’s biggest touring theatre production inspired by the ultimate girl power group. The show is currently on its second UK tour and is now the nation’s fasting selling music theatre tour.
WANNABE follows the girls’ glittering careers from their first release to their 2012 Olympic Ceremony reunion. Featuring the Spice Girls’ biggest hits and songs from their solo careers the cast bring to the stage the infamous and unique charisma which the Spice Girls were so well known for.
Representing the production, vocal coach Emily Clark said, “We’re all obsessed with 90’s music and we wanted to make a big splash with this huge concert tour. We’re creating the ultimate girls night out and who doesn’t know the words to ‘Spice Up Your Life’ or ‘Stop’?!”
It’s time to let your inner Spice Girl run wild and dance your way into Spice World for a glamorous, glittery, fun-filled trip down Girl Power memory lane. Visit www.spicegirls-exhibition.com for more info!
