A SERIES of contemporary issues and ancient stories are being brought to life at the Godfrey Pilkington Gallery.

The exhibition - called Telling Tales: Story Scrolls from India - will be in St Helens until Sunday, June 3.

The scrolls are touring the region for the next year as part of National Museums Liverpool’s Partnerships programme.

Cath Shea, arts development manager at St Helens Council, said: “We’re privileged to be associated with this exciting and innovative initiative.

“And we’re delighted to get the chance to share these beautiful pieces of art with local residents and visitors from across the region. Pictured with one of the scrolls are (left to right) Emma Martin, Head of Ethnology and Curator of Asia Collections, National Museums Liverpool; Terry Hatton and Gail Wollen, volunteers at the Godfrey Pilkington Gallery.
