BBC News and Sport on Tour has been taking place at events around the UK this summer.

We have been on the road with our interactive marquee to give you a behind-the-scenes look at BBC News, Sport and Weather.

This is your chance to have a go at reading the news on television or radio in our special studios. You can also try at some of the technical roles involved in getting programmes on air and check out some of the interactive services the BBC has to offer.

Top presenters

Some of the BBC's top national and regional TV and radio presenters - such as Dermot Murnaghan, Jane Hill and John Inverdale and top sports personalities such as Steve Cram and Hazel Irvine - have been there to give you tips and advice.
