And next year, you can trek to the Great Wall of China!

From 30 March – 7 April 2019, you can join us on a once-in-a-lifetime trek along the Great Wall and help change the lives of disadvantaged youngsters across the UK by raising money for Classic FM’s very own charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.

This unique Great Wall adventure will take you across the woodland and terraced farmland of China’s stunning landscape, following the contours of the mountains in the remote areas north of Beijing. This hugely rewarding, guided trek has been specially planned to suit the ability of most confident walkers.
