A top BBC Radio 1 DJ will play a 'unique' show at a North East swimming pool with a giant inflatable.

Charlie Hedges – presenter of BBC Radio 1’s Dance Anthems – is set to DJ poolside at Sunderland Aquatic Centre on Saturday, March 23.

The DJ will play two 90-minute sets at the state-of-the-art centre, managed by Everyone Active in partnership with Sunderland City Council.

The sets will take place from 4pm-5.30pm and 6.30pm-8pm, with music and top hits creating an 'irresistible atmosphere'.

Alongside the event, the Atlantis Adventure Mega Inflatable will be out for the local community to use – the biggest indoor inflatable in the North East.
