Global’s Classic FM Live event won’t go ahead

Global says its Classic FM Live event at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday 18th May won’t now go ahead.

This follows the government’s advice regarding mass gatherings because of the developing coronavirus outbreak, together with the uncertainty surrounding live events and the Royal Albert Hall’s closure period.

The sold-out concert was to be in celebration of the 20th anniversary of ‘Classic FM Live’.

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.”

Tickets will be refunded for the face value, booking fees and any delivery fees, where applicable, from the original point of purchase.
