Want your group to feature on Classic FM Drive this Christmas

This Christmas, five member groups will be featured on Classic FM Drive performing a carol in one of the weeks leading up to Christmas.

How many carol recordings will be selected?

Five carols will be selected for broadcast by Classic FM from those you submit to us.

Only choirs?

No, if you have a great recording of your instrumental group performing a carol, please do send it in.

What is the maximum length?

Five minutes, but if you have a fantastic recording that goes over that, Classic FM will consider it, so do please still send it in.

What else do they need apart from the recording?

Please also send us:

  • 500 words on your group/the recording/the carol
  • your website address
  • any social media handles you use

Who do we send the recording to?

Please send recordings to: Sally Palmer, Making Music, 8 Holyrood Street, London SE1 2EL or email sally@makingmusic.org.uk .

What is the deadline?

9am Monday 16 November.

When will we know if our carol has been selected?

You will be informed by Friday 4 December.

When will the carols be broadcast?

One each weekday in one of the weeks leading up to Christmas (probably w/c 7 December).

What format should we submit our carol in?

You can submit:

  • a CD
  • a USB stick
  • electronically online

The preferred electronic format if ripping the audio from a CD is WAV rather than MP3.

The quality of your recording will be a strong deciding factor in whether your carol is selected, so please do select the best possible recording.
