A new series for students is coming to Classic FM, every Saturday night from 9-10pm, with a star line-up including multi million-selling artist Ellie Goulding; singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi; Dan Smith, lead singer of the multi-million selling band Bastille; and Vick Hope, from Classic FM’s sister station, Capital.
Each week, the programme will focus on a different theme, including managing exam stress, beating procrastination, last-minute cramming and dealing with exam panic.
In the latest official audience figures, more than half a million under-25s tune in to Classic FM every week. Over the past three years during the exam period (April to June), there’s been an almost 50% increase in the number of 16-to-25s in full time education who listen to the station, with average hours up 75% in the same period.
Pete Langley, The Student Room’s director of study help: “Our partnership with Classic FM on this new series will help provide an additional outlet and haven for students. In a unique way, the series brings together classical music, to aid relaxation and concentration, with advice and tips from some of our leading experts on studying. Revision is all about balance and we believe everyone could benefit from giving themselves an hour every Saturday to tune in to Classic FM’s Revision Hour.”
Lead singer of Bastille is no stranger to classical music, having completed a Bastille 'ReOrchestrated' tour in 2018 which combined classical and pop. Now, he joins Classic FM's Revision Hour to bring relaxing music to students that need a musical escape during the exam period.
