With 2016 marking the 20th anniversary of the launch of one of the most iconic groups of all time, The Spice Girls, the UK’s most iconic amusement park is celebrating by launching an exhibition dedicated to all things Girl Power!  Spiceworld the Exhibition is taking place at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! between 24th March and 26th June.

This extraordinary collection is the work of visual artist, Liz West, who is the foremost collector of Spice Girls memorabilia and merchandise in the World with over 5,000 individual items devoted to the band and a Guinness World Record to mark her achievement.

The vast array of objects within this impressive collection outlines the success and impact the Spice Girls had upon popular music in the 1990’s.  As the first manufactured all female chart group, the Spice Girls spawned the phrase “Girl Power” and become five of the most photographed people in the world!

The collection includes over 80 designer and hand-made outfits, jewellery and shoes, all of which were worn by the Spice Girls in music videos, live concerts, on screen and at high profile public engagements.  Alongside these rare items, the collection showcases awards discs from all over the world, unique endorsement items, sponsorship merchandise, official products and worldwide releases on vinyl, CD, cassette, VHS, DVD, and other formats.

Spiceworld The Exhibition runs from 24th March to 26th June 2016 at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!  Entry costs £6 for adults, £5 for students, £4 for OAPs and £3 for children with under 4’s receiving free admission.  There is no additional cost to see the exhibition.  For more information, visit www.ripleys.com/blackpool or call 0871 222 1234.
