BBC Midlands out and about

Published on Thursday, 24th March 2016

The BBC in the Midlands – through Midlands Today, Inside Out and Local Radio - has been delivering surprising stories from familiar places for many years.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty more to be told! 

And during the Easter holiday fortnight the BBC Midlands Out & About Bus, along with well-known TV and Radio Presenters from the Region will be seeking out those stories from members of the public. 

Viewers and listeners will be invited to record their “surprising stories” on camera and highlight any local issues they feel are not being given air time. There’s also an opportunity to “Turn Tables”, by interviewing the interviewers and having a go at presenting the weather, or reading the news.

Nick Owen, Mary Rhodes, Andy Akinwolere, Rebecca Wood and Dan Pallett will all be making appearances at different venues.       

The BBC Midlands Out & About Bus will be visiting The Trentham Estate on Tuesday 29 March (1000-1600);

Nuneaton Market on Wednesday 30 March (1000-1600);

Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, nr Craven Arms on Thursday 31 March (1000-1400);

South and City College, Bordesley Green, Birmingham on Monday 4 April (1000-1400); 

The Way Youth Zone, Wolverhampton on Tuesday 5 April (1000-1700) and

Malvern Cube in Worcestershire on Friday 8 April (1000-1600).
