Weekend morning show presenter Nick Bright is to broadcast his show from Manchester’s Albert Square next weekend.

He’ll be there to celebrate the opening of the World Athletics Championships in Beijing, welcoming various guests from the world of athletics and music, including live music.

The public can turn up to the event for free and see live music from Manchester rap artist RIO and Liverpool’s MIC Lowry will perform an acoustic set. Another of Manchester’s sons DJ Stylus will be in the mix playing all the big hip hop and RnB bangers.

Nick will also welcome guests from the world of athletics to celebrate the opening of the World Athletics Championships in Beijing, and Radio 5 live reporter and ex-sprinter Jeanette Kwayke will be on reporting duties.

Throughout the morning the public can register to compete in Street Athletics, a Manchester City Council initiative which young people can enter on the day. Nick Bright is the partner of Liverpool heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson, one of Team GB’s biggest hopes for a medal in Beijing. Katarina’s heptathlon campaign begins in the early hours of Saturday 22 August (UK time).
