A new art exhibition has gone on display at West Bromwich arts venue The Public inspired by the stories of Oldbury author Allan Ahlberg.

The exhibition, called Stories From The Playground, has been put together with the help of local school children who have been working alongside different artists to create their own work in response to stories written by Allan and Janet Ahlberg.

World famous author Allan Ahlberg grew up and later worked as a school teacher in Oldbury. Together, with his illustrator wife Janet, he has created many popular children’s books

Stories from the Playground is a celebration of Allan and Janet’s work incorporating the new work created by the children. It will be on display at The Public, in New Street, until 18 September 2011.
