Tale of the Unexpected


It’s time to tell our story - that is the theme for Knowsley’s year as Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture and this summer, from Monday 1 August – Saturday 17 September, Kirkby Gallery will present a vibrant exhibition of work created by the borough’s children and young people. In 2022, school children across Knowsley will create their stories, inspired by their own lives and where they live - historical, mythical or imagined.

These words and stories will transform the entire gallery into a larger-than-life open book with giant pages showing the children’s work. The exhibition will offer visitors a unique opportunity to take a journey through the fantastic imaginations of local school children.

Kirkby Gallery is open Monday to Friday: 10am – 5pm (last entry at 4.30pm), Saturdays 10am – 1pm (last entry at 12.30pm). You will find it on the first floor of The Kirkby Centre, Norwich Way, Kirkby, Knowsley, L32 8XY.
