WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Come on a musical journey with Swedish pop sensation ABBA as they take over 1970s Britain in this one-of-a-kind exhibition. Led by a personal tour guide and the voice of narrator Jarvis Cocker, we take you through nine immersive rooms exploring the music, lyrics and lives of one of the world's most unforgettable bands. Get close to never-before-seen items from the band's archive including personal notes, memorabilia and iconic costumes. Chart their rise to fame and lasting legacy; from their early pop explosion onto the British music scene, to chart-topping international stardom. Taking on 1970s Britain, in the midst of a financial crisis, a wave of strikes and a three-day working week, ABBA were a breath of fresh air, dominating the airwaves with their upbeat anthems channelling positivity and optimism.
