    Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced for Octoberfest 2012 line-up

    Controller, World War One Centenary

    Octoberfest, 5 live's free three-day festival of shows and off air events, is only a few weeks away now and we're putting the finishing touches to the programme line ups.

    One guest who'll be joining us is Nick Clegg, who'll take part in a special one-off show hosted by Shelagh Fogarty from 12pm on Friday 12 October. The Deputy Prime Minister, leader of the Liberal Democrats and MP for Sheffield Hallam, will face questions from 5 live listeners about the coalition government.

    The debate is just one highlight of the festival, run in partnership with BBC Radio Sheffield, which will also feature many other 5 live programmes including 606, 5 live Breakfast, Fighting Talk, Richard Bacon and Kermode and Mayo's Film Review.

    There'll also be off-air events too that anyone who can get to Sheffield will be able to come along and enjoy in the 5 live activity 'Igloo', which will be located in Tudor Square. On top of all that we're also trying to break a world record forChildren in Need (more details of this one will come in the next few days).

    The shows will all take place in the Crucible and Lyceum Theatres and free tickets are available now.

    Adrian Van-Klaveren is controller of BBC Radio 5 live and BBC Radio 5 live Sports Extra.
