Free tickets are being made available for an Andy Warhol exhibition of his paintings and prints which is taking place at Holyrood this autumn.

Portraits of Lenin and Chairman Mao will be part of the display from 5 October to 3 November.

The tickets are available online from 10:00 BST on Friday.

The Scottish Parliament, Carnegie UK Trust and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh worked together to make the exhibition possible.

The parliament has said booking is recommended as tickets will be allocated by a specific viewing time.

Presiding Officer Tricia Marwick said: "This is the first politically curated exhibition of Andy Warhol's work and the first time his works have ever been shown in a legislature and so represents a real coup for the Scottish Parliament.

"The Scottish Parliament is not just a place for politicians - our building is home to many events and exhibitions that get people talking and thinking about issues that matter to them.

"This unique exhibition will offer people the chance to explore the role of power and politics within the home of debate in Scotland and I am grateful to the Carnegie UK Trust and The Andy Warhol Museum for making it possible."

The exhibition has been timed to coincide with Scottish philanthropist Andrew Carnegie's International Legacy: Shaping the Future festival, which celebrates the centenary of the formation of the Carnegie UK Trust.
