CREATIVE kids will be showing off their artwork at an exhibition this weekend.

Youngsters at Lady Katherine Leveson Junior School took part in a week long art project where they had to create a collage inspired by their favourite place.

And their work will be on display this weekend as part of the events taking place in Temple Balsall for the Heritage Open Days.

Visitors will be able to see the artwork in the school hall from 10am until 5pm on Saturday and from 11.15am until 4pm on Sunday.

During the weekend there will also be an autumn fair on Saturday from 12pm until 5pm and a concert on Friday at 7.30pm at St Mary' Church.

And the village is just one place involved in the Heritage Open Days.

Historic Malvern Hall at St Martin's School will be welcoming visitors free of charge on Saturday.

The hall, situated at the end of Brueton Avenue, is one of Solihull's oldest buildings and is currently used as the main administrative building by the school.

In the past it inspired artist John Constable and the building became Solihull High School for Girls in 1931.

Other events over the weekend include an exhibition on local history at Knowle Library, Umberslade Baptist Church will be open and a free exhibition at Solihull Heritage Gallery at Solihull Library is taking place.

Visit www.solihull.gov.uk/heritage for more information about events happening across the borough.
