Alexander Armstrong singing in a telephone box

Music Marathon

Classic FM’s Alexander Armstrong is attempting to set a world record, challenging himself to perform 24 concerts in just 24 hours.

He will be celebrating the return of live music by singing his favourite songs at some iconic locations and a few unexpected places too. Along the way he’ll meet some very special people.

Alexander is taking on this challenge to raise money for Classic FM’s charity, Global’s Make Some Noise, which supports vital, small projects across the UK.

There will be no interval for Alexander at these concerts. Starting at midday on Thursday 30th September, he will be racing against the clock to give 24 performances and arrive in time for the finale: a very special concert at Classic FM’s HQ just before midday on Friday 1st October.

Classic FM’s charity

Global’s Make Some Noise improves the lives of disadvantaged people by working with small charities across the UK.  

We believe everyone deserves to feel safe, feel well, feel included and feel prepared. That’s why we work across four key areas: providing shelter and safety, supporting physical and mental health, preventing isolation and improving life skills.  

We’re keeping crucial services going, such as food banks, domestic violence and mental health helplines, carer support, community projects and employment programmes.  

We’re proud to be a voice for small charities. We raise awareness of some of the biggest issues affecting our society by working with Global, the Media & Entertainment Group.

Each concert venue will be revealed to Alexander throughout his challenge. Here is a little taster of what’s in store…
