Spice Up Your Life – 25 Years Of Girl Power
July 3, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
When the Spice Girls debut single, Wannabe, was released in 1996, the only word to describe the reaction to it is frenzy! Even now, 25 year on, the opening ‘Yooooo’ to the track still has the power to provoke a big reaction. To mark the anniversary of the single – and indeed the frenzy that followed – Richard E Grant, who was in the movie Spice World, embarks on a nostalgic journey revisiting the much-loved songs of the Spice Girls canon, whilst speaking to some of the UK’s biggest Spice Girl superfans to get to the heart of what the group and girl power meant then and what it still means today. This programme is a joyful celebration of fandom, girl power, the music of the 90s and above all the Spice Girls!
