Classic FM Live, due to take place at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday 18 May 2020, sadly cannot go ahead due to COVID-19 measures.

Following governmental guidance regarding mass gatherings in relation to the developing coronavirus outbreak, coupled with the uncertainty surrounding live events and the Royal Albert Hall’s closure period, Classic FM has today announced that Classic FM Live at the Royal Albert Hall, on Monday 18th May, cannot go ahead. The sold-out concert was in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Classic FM Live.

Customers will receive a full refund for the face value of tickets, booking fees and any delivery fees, where applicable, via their original point of purchase.

A spokesperson for Classic FM said: “Classic FM is extremely sorry for any disappointment this news has caused. However, the wellbeing of our listeners and particularly, in the current circumstances, older people and vulnerable adults, is of paramount importance and has been placed at the forefront of our decision making.”
