The Blu-ray/DVD is available to pre-order now at the link below. 

The re-release will be launched with a special preview screening at BFI Southbank on 3rd April 2020, preceded by an on-stage Q&A with Neil Tennant, Jack Bond and choreographer Arlene Phillips. Tickets will be on sale from the link below as follows:
