To coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the Spice Girls hit single, Wannabe, Watford Colosseum will be hosting an exhibition dedicated to the 90’s pop phenomenon The Spice Girls.
Spiceworld: The Exhibition celebrates the story of how Sporty, Baby, Scary, Posh and Watford’s own Ginger became the most successful girl group of all time and enjoyed phenomenal global success. The basis for the exhibition 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. The collection has been given a special seal of approval – by Scary Spice, Mel B herself – “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 open in Geri’s hometown, Watford, from 7 July to 7 August, during Watford Colosseum’s standard opening hours (Mon – Sat 12pm – 4pm and 2 hours before a performance). The exhibition is free to attend and tickets do not need to be purchased in advance.

You can pre-order the Spiceworld: The Exhibition catalogue and collect it on the day of you visit. This 100-page paperback catalogue by Nicholas Oddy (Foreword), Liz West (Author), Marek Romaniszyn (Contributor), Matt West (Designer), and Ben Barker (Photographer), is filled with fantastic full colour photography of costumes and memorabilia. It also contains an interview with Liz West, the super-fan who this entire collection personally belongs to.

Thus it was at Sagardi in Shoreditch, where the ravenous foodie press was assembled earlier this week, to witness the butchery of, and subsequent cooking over a splendid barbecue grill, of a side of ox.
