Hold tight, as the exhibition gives fans of the world famous five piece a second chance to get up close and personal with an extensive collection of band memorabilia.

Displaying iconic costumes from Scary, Sporty, Baby, Posh and Ginger, as well as items from a never seen before private collection, there will be something new for even the biggest Wannabe fans out there.

New to the exhibition in Manchester is the opportunity to look around the original Spice Bus. Unmissable with its Union Jack design, the gravity defying double decker will be situated in Great Northern square, offering fans the opportunity to sit in its famous driving seat.

Alan Smith-Allison, the curator of the events said, “After the phenomenal reaction to #SpiceUpLondon and #SpiceUpManchester we wanted to give Manchester the chance to see more of the world-famous girl band. The biggest touring music exhibition is about to get a whole lot bigger! Hold on to your knickers Manchester, Girl Power is coming at ya!”

Smith-Allison teamed up with renowned Spice Girls collectors from around the world, including Manchester’s own Guinness World Record holder, artist Liz West, who owns over 5,000 individual items ranging from branded crisp packets and clocks, to the jacket Mel B herself wore to meet Nelson Mandela.

Mark Schofield, Centre Director for Great Northern said: “Manchester is famous for its music scene, past and present. We want to support this here at the Great Northern, as well as give people the opportunity to relive the best of 90’s pop culture”
