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 01724 297070.

Christmas Lights Switch-on

Saturday 30 November 10am-6pm

Join 20-21 Visual Arts Centre to celebrate the switching on of Scunthorpe’s Christmas lights. As well as all the great Christmas events and entertainment going on out in Church Square, we’ll be celebrating the start of Christmas season in style with lots of festive activities in the gallery.

We’re open late so pop in after the switch on for some crafting fun!

Sing-Along Snowman

Wednesday 4 December 4.30pm & 6.30pm £1

North Lincolnshire’s largest and longest established Festival of Christmas Trees is joining forces with 20-21 Visual Arts Centre to stage a brand new and adorable Festival Fringe event.

The Rotary Club of Scunthorpe has been organising the town’s Christmas Tree Festival at Old Brumby United Church, Ashby Road, for the last 15 years. This year we are delighted to present a jointly organised Fringe event.

20-21 education room and café will host showings of the much-loved animated film “The Snowman”, based upon Raymond Briggs’ 1978 children’s book, but with the added attraction of live music and your chance to sing along with “Walking in the Air”. Music will be conducted by Susan Hollingworth BEM. There will also be Snowman crafts and more surprises.

All young visitors to the performances are invited to come to the showings wearing pyjamas, dressing gowns and scarves – just like James in the film!

The showings are family-friendly and are likely to be very popular, so early booking is encouraged. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Lindsey Lodge Hospice. Book your place through Eventbrite.

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