Do something extraordinary AND change young lives across the UK by trekking the Great Wall of China from 31st March – 8th April 2017.

Visiting the spectacular Great Wall of China is on many people’s must-do list.

In Spring 2017 you can join us on a once-in-a-lifetime nine-day trek along the Great Wall – and help us raise money for Classic FM's charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

Experience this ancient landmark beyond the realms usually visited by tourists. The unique Great Wall adventure will take us across woodland and terraced farmland of China’s stunning landscape, following the contours of the mountains in the remote areas north of Beijing.

By joining us for this once-in-a-lifetime trip, you’ll be helping Global’s Make Some Noise to change young lives across the UK and raise awareness of some inspiring, small projects that struggle to get heard.

So, what are you waiting for?
