BBC Manchester @ Christmas

BBC Radio Manchester went out and about again at the start of Christmas to take in the Christmas cheer at the markets across Greater Manchester.

Two weeks at five different markets both weeks looked the same as far as venues go..

Monday - Ashton Under Lyne
Tuesday - Bolton
Wednesday - Bury
Thursday - Wigan
Friday - Altringtham

With each venue getting its own outside broadcast.

Tuesday - Phil and Ali (Week 2)
Wednesday - Mike Sweeney (Week 2)
Thursday - Mike Sweeney (Week 1)
Friday - Becky Want (Week 2)

There was two aims of the outside tour. 

1. To promote BBC Radio Manchester in the outlining towns of the Greater Manchester.

2. To  broadcast from areas that BBC Radio Manchester from areas that don't get a lot of coverage on air.

To that end BBC Manchester spent a lot of time taking photos of listeners for the Facebook page. They can be found in the Christmas markets album.
