Illustrator Rosie Brooks has designed a charming selection of music-themed Christmas cards and musical themed 2021 calendar for us!
We know it’s a bit early to talk about Christmas… but we couldn’t wait to let you know that our brilliant illustrator, Rosie Brooks, has just added the finishing touches to the brand new Classic FM Christmas card range as well as a musically-themed calendar for 2021.
The cards are available in packs of 10, with two versions ready to snap up – ‘A Christmas Carol’ and ‘Sleigh Ride’. And if you can’t decide between them, you can buy both packs together for a discount.
The illustrations themselves pay tribute to some of Classic FM’s favourite carols, as voted for each year in The Nation’s Favourite Carol. Carols honoured are ‘O Tannenbaum’, ‘The Holly and the Ivy’, ‘Sleigh Ride’ and ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’.
“It has been such an amazing experience collaborating with Classic FM and Global’s Make Some Noise,” the artist, Rosie Brooks says. “I have listened to Classic FM since the first day it broadcast and it is always on in the background in my studio whilst I am drawing.”
Brooks continues: “I was thrilled when asked to create illustrations for the Hall of Fame jigsaw puzzle, helping the brilliant Make Some Noise charity raise money and support those in need. Life is tougher than ever for so many people at the moment and music has a beautiful way of connecting us all. I think we all need that – now more than ever.”
The cards are square – 125mm x 125mm – when folded, and come with 10 plain white envelopes. They are made from responsible sources and are 100 percent recyclable.

The 2021 calendar features an illustration of a different piece of music each month, linked with the month. Throughout the year you will also find all key UK holidays and birthdays of over 40 composers, along with their year of birth.
The calendar is rectangle – 425 x 297mm when opened – 210 x 297mm when closed. They are made from responsible sources and are 100 percent recyclable.
100 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of these Christmas cards and calendar will be donated to Classic FM’s charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.
