More than 100 primary school pupils, teachers and students have attended a special Islam Awareness Week presentation in Shrewsbury.
The Explore Islam exhibition was hosted by Shrewsbury College on Tuesday. The event was opened by the Mayor of Shrewsbury, Councillor Tony Durnell and coordinated by Staffordshire University, a partner of the college.

The exhibition that was launched in 2006, aims to build bridges between local communities by offering young people the opportunity to talk to Muslims and to experience aspects of the Islamic way of life.
Visitors took part in a variety of interactive activities, sampled traditional foods and were encouraged to ask questions.
Gina Cussack, student engagement coordinator for Shrewsbury College, said the day had gone very well.
