Really really spicy collection in Watford
The Spice Girls will be remembered in the home town of member Geri Halliwell when a touring exhibition arrives tomorrow (Thursday) for a month.
Spiceworld: The Exhibition is dedicated to the 90s pop phenomenon and celebrates the story of how Sporty, Baby, Scary, Ginger and Posh became the most successful girl group of all time and enjoyed phenomenal global success.
The basis for the exhibition at the Watford Colosseum is the Guinness World Record breaking collection of artist and curator Liz West, who is the foremost collector of Spice Girls memorabilia and merchandise in the world.
Ms West said: “I am thrilled that Watford Colosseum is hosting my iconic Spice Girls collection in 2016, 20 years after the release of the Spice Girls first single Wannabe.
“It seems very fitting for the collection to be in Geri’s home town in this important anniversary year.
“I hope visitors enjoy getting up close to these amazing handmade couture outfits worn by the girls in their 90s heyday.”
The collection has been given a special seal of approval by Scary Spice, Mel B, who said: “I really hope that everyone will like this exhibition.
“It is truly an honour to have such an extensive collection of our past be brought out for everyone to enjoy.”
Spiceworld: The Exhibition will be displayed at the Watford Colosseum through to Sunday August 7.
It will be open during the theatre’s standard opening hours from noon to 4pm and for two hours before a performance from Mondays to Saturdays.
The exhibition is free to attend and tickets do not need to be obtained in advance.
