Brintons Carpets get Spiced Up
16th July 2012
The Spice Girls have reunited once more on the staircase which proved to be their step to stardom. It is the first time the group has been together since they completed their 2008 reunion tour as they launched Viva Forever, a stage musical inspired by their songs which has been written by Jennifer Saunders.
The staircase at St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London famously featured in the video for the band’s debut single Wannabe. When it was filmed in 1996, the property was unoccupied but it has now been lavishly refurbished as the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. The girls – Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Mel C and Mel B – looked similarly elegant as they lined up on the grand staircase carpet which was developed by Brintons using period design material from our own archive in Kidderminster as inspiration.
Viva Forever will feature chart hits recorded by the group during their years of chart domination in the late 1990s and is due to open at the Piccadilly Theatre in London’s West End on December 11.
