Turns out there’s an ABBA museum in Stockholm, and it’s coming to London later this year.

The exhibition will include previously unseen archive material including ABBA’s original costumes, handwritten notes and sketches, personal photographs, music and instruments, plus album artwork, photography and film by notable collaborators such as film director Lasse Hallström.

It’ll also look at the influence of their, ahem, unique costume styling.

Objects from the ABBA museum and private archives will be brought together in the UK for the first time, charting their success from individual careers to Eurovision Song Contest win and subsequent international stardom.

The exhibition will launch as part of Southbank Centre’s Wintertime festival and the final month of Nordic Matters – the ongoing programme of Nordic arts and culture at Southbank Centre throughout 2017.

It opens on the 14th December.

The Money Money Money needed to visit will range from £15-£25 per person, and the nearest tube station to the SouthBank Centre is… Waterloo.

Tickets go on sale on the SouthBank website this Thursday (6th July).

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Sorry, total failure of understanding here.
    So, they are or were a mushy pop-group, so what?
    Those of us who pay attention to the real world would like a fuller explanation – please?
