Fundays and Events

Here at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre we offer a number of fundays throughout the year. These are usually linked to our exhibitions and are family orientated. As well as our artivity table, we have as many different activities, often with exhibiting artists. We also regularly feature children’s entertainers, and have lots of helpful volunteers to make sure you enjoy your day. For further information on any of our upcoming events, email or call 01724297070.

Saturday 24 November – Scunthorpe Christmas Lights Switch-on

This year’s lights switch-on will return to Church Square on Saturday 24 November – and as normal we’ll be opening late to allow people coming to see the celebrations to warm up, visit our exhibitions, and take advantage of the festive offerings on sale in our cafe.

From 3.30pm, Lincs FM will be live from Church Square, offering lots of festive fun – including a Little Mix tribute act performing live on stage – and guaranteeing a white Christmas with their snow machine.

Last years light switch on was a great success with fun for all of the family, this included a choir and stalls selling gifts, food and drink. There was also a Little Mix tribute act that performed live on stage and Father Christmas turned up to turn on the lights.

It shall be a fun filled night with fun for all to enjoy. Bring the family and watch Scunthorpe illuminate!

10am to 6pm – Everyone Welcome.


Our events are suitable for all, but children under-eight must be accompanied by a participating adult.
