Get ready to relive the playlist of your life by celebrating 40 years of the iconic and chart-topping compilations brand NOW That’s What I Call Music, which has sold an estimated 200 million copies worldwide, bursting with hits from Whitney Houston, Wham! Blondie, Tears For Fears, Spandau Ballet and many more.

It’s Birmingham, 1989. Two school friends, Gemma and April, are busy with very important business: planning their lives based on Number One Magazine quizzes and dreaming of snogging Rick Astley.

Cut to Birmingham 2009 and it’s the most dreaded event of their lives: the school reunion. Drama, old flames and receding hairlines come together as friends reunite and everything from the past starts to slot into place. The biggest question is: what was with all that hairspray?
