Come and celebrate the launch of Discarded Things with us this September.

Discarded Things is a creative response to the worrying statistic that ‘by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish’. Rossall Beach Community Group has been working over the past 18 months, in partnership with artists Invisible Flock, to create a piece of artwork that responds to this issue.

On the 11 September, from 1-4, we are hosting a celebration event to launch a pop up exhibition about the project and a special close up preview of the brand new art work before it flies off to its new home on the beach. Come down to our pop up cabin on Rossall Prom, Cleveleys (in the car park near the end gates)  to discover all about the Discarded Things project. There will be a chance to meet the artists, see the 3D printer in action, craft activity for all the family, music, food and a chance to learn all about the work of the Rossall Beach Buddies.

From the 12 to 21 September  the pop up cabin will be hosting a  programme of exciting activity exploring the themes of recycling and reusing, ranging from arts workshops to finding out how to get involved in local beach cleans. All the activity is FREE.
