Reincarnated Rubbish – Endangered and Extinct 2 @ Discover Bucks Museum
Oct 2 @ 10:00 am – Oct 30 @ 4:00 pm
Reincarnated Rubbish – Endangered and Extinct 2 @ Discover Bucks Museum | England | United Kingdom

We’re delighted to show work by Val Hunt once again. With inspiration, ingenuity, humour and skill, creative recycling artist Val Hunt has created a fascinating selection of large and small sculptural pieces which are both appealing and informative.

Animals, exotic birds, fish, dinosaurs and species of flora, all on the edge or now extinct, have been made from a selection of throwaway materials especially Val’s favourite medium, metal drink cans.

This exhibition is full of witty, humorous, imaginative and thought-provoking constructions. The exhibition presents a subtle message about recycling and preservation and hopefully it will inspire and encourage everyone to experience the fun of creative recycling.

Visitors loved the exhibition last time and found Val’s creations amazing. One visitor said that it was the most wonderful exhibition that she had ever visited! There are some new pieces including Val’s sculpture of the Queen.

PRESENTED BY ROTARY ROCKS
The long awaited debut of Skamungas at The Limelight – a night not to be missed! If you thought you didn’t like ska and reggae this band might well change your mind, or even your life, with their infectious enthusiasm and unique take on those instantly recognisable ska and reggae standards.
In 2017 some very talented musicians from across the Home Counties came together to do something different. Skamungas was formed and rapidly achieved a great live reputation. With a terrific brass section of trombone and tenor sax, driving drums and bass, rhythmic guitar and keyboards, harmonised backing vocals and a lead vocalist to die for, Skamungas is set to achieve even greater things.
After the gig desert of 2020/21 the band is revitalised and dying to give a little love and do the reggae. Seriously – get your tickets early!!
All proceeds from this event to the Rotary Club of Aylesbury Hundreds Charity Fund supporting local charities and community projects.
