A BBC Radio programme will be broadcast from across the north-east later this month.

BBC Radio 3's award-winning Breakfast programme is hitting the road this July, with Petroc Trelawny presenting live broadcasts from a series of locations.

From July 22 to July 26, from 6.30am to 9.30am, Trelawney will guide listeners on a journey through the North East of England.

Exploring local nature, culture, and history, the programme will visit a series of landmarks, from Lindisfarne off the Northumbrian Coast, to Vindolanda in Hexham, The Bowes Museum, and Durham Cathedral.

Highlights of the tour will include an exploration of Lindisfarne Castle and Vindolanda.

Lindisfarne Castle is an ancient fortress on the Northumbrian Coast that was transformed into a holiday home by architect Edwin Lutyens.

On July 22, listeners will hear about the castle's rich history and the unique nature of the area, as well as live music from local musicians.

Vindolanda, an ancient Roman fort on the edges of the Roman Empire, is one of Europe's most important archaeological sites.

On July 23, Trelawney will provide insight into the history of the fort, discuss the rich folk traditions of the area, and present live music performances from Letty Stott and Mike Tickell.

BBC Radio 3 Breakfast presenter Petroc Trelawny said: "I am thrilled to be presenting Breakfast from the North East of England, adding these beautiful locations to our series of road trips.

"I can’t wait to share the wealth of history and music of this area with all our listeners across the UK."

Sam Jackson, controller BBC Radio 3 and BBC Proms, said: "We are delighted to be taking Radio 3 Breakfast on tour across the North East of England, providing what we hope will be the perfect prelude to the BBC Proms weekend at The Glasshouse in Gateshead."

Previous Breakfast road trips have included traveling lough-to-lough across Northern Ireland, coast-to-coast across the Scottish Highlands, and along the Rivers Ure and Ouse to the Humber in Yorkshire.

The broadcasts will be available live from July 22 to July 26, between 6.30 and 9.30am, and will then be available on BBC Sounds.
