For the first time ever, Spice Girls super fans from all over the world are set to have their dreams come true with an overnight stay in the original Spice Bus.
Mega-fan Suzanne has listed the iconic bus from the 1997 movie Spice World on the Airbnb platform, allowing her fellow girl power enthusiasts the chance to relive the celebrated movie this June.
The Spice Bus will be situated in the heart of Wembley Park, where guests will be able to stay overnight on 14thand 15th June.
The recently renovated living area features pink Union Jack cinema chairs below a ‘Girl Power’ neon light installation and is fully stocked with vintage 90s magazines and CDs to help recreate the 90s era. With bold interiors, potted plants create a fresh homely feel downstairs while bright colourful scatter cushions surround the central seating area, providing a comfy place for guests to relax and spend time with each other.
Upstairs there’s a dressing area where guests can decide whether to wear the little Gucci dress, the little Gucci dress, or… the little Gucci dress. The adjoining bedroom, fitted with a striking animal-print carpet, provides comfy bedding for three guests who get to call the Spice Bus home for the night.
Host Suzanne Godley comments: “The Spice Girls were my childhood obsession. My parents were subjected to my tone-deaf performances as Baby Spice, and I must have watched the Spice World movie hundreds of times. And while I have grown up over the years, I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of my love for them.”
“When my boss mentioned that he was considering buying the Spice Bus I was desperate to be a part of its renovation. We’ve worked hard over the past few months to turn the bus into a home, in keeping with its legacy, and I’m so excited to open it up to the public with the support of Airbnb. Being part of this project has been like a dream come true and I can’t wait to meet other Spice Girls fans through this experience.”
The bus will be located in Market Square, off Olympic Way in Wembley Park and available to book for Friday 14th and Saturday 15th June for just £99 a night. The bus sleeps three guests maximum, with no pets allowed and 90s double denim dress sense suggested (obvz).
Hadi Moussa, General Manager for Northern Europe at Airbnb comments: “Being one of the first people in the world to stay in the iconic Spice Bus is a dream come true for any fan and a once in a lifetime way to spend time with friends or family.”
Given the high level of interest anticipated, dates will be available to book from 8AM BST on Wednesday 22nd May, to give as many fans as possible the chance to book.
This summer, Wembley Park, where the bus will be stationed for the duration of the stay, is running a free outdoor summer screening programme from 31st May to 23rd July during which a series of iconic films will be shown, including Spice World on 13th, 14th and 15th June.
