The exhibition " Bright and Beautiful" sees  banners on display from a range of Tameside Sunday schools and churches. It also looks at the workmanship involved in the banners and their role in Whit Walks and the growth of Sunday schools which were once attended by a quarter of the population.
 
 "Bright and Beuatiful" is on at Tameside Central Art Gallery, Old Street, Ashton-under-Lyne, on Saturday, October 3, and runs until January 9, 2016.
