ABBA: Super Troupers - Access Tours

Part of Nordic Matters

Come on a musical journey with Swedish pop sensation ABBA as they take over 1970s Britain in this one-of-a-kind exhibition. Throughout the exhibition's run, we are offering specially adapted tours, including British Sign Language Interpreted, Autism and Tourettes Friendly and Dementia Friendly tours.

5pm Wednesday 31 January and 5pm Wednesday 28 March

Autism and Tourettes Friendly*
10.30am Wednesday 28 February

Dementia Friendly

We'll take you through nine immersive rooms exploring the music, lyrics and lives of one of the world’s most unforgettable bands with your very own tour guide.

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.

ABBA: Super Troupers is presented by Southbank Centre in partnership with Entertainment Exhibitions International AB, in association with ABBA The Museum.

*An autism-friendly performance is open to anyone but is particularly suited to those on the autistic spectrum or people who have learning disabilities, sensory or communication disorders. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects.
