Here at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, we have five exhibition spaces showing a range of contemporary art and craft from local, regional, national and international artists.

Current exhibitions:

4 November to 20 January
Swords into Ploughshares: Knives into Jewels
Stunning work by artists and designers working in metal, made in response to knife crime in the UK.

Please note: The Nave and Chancel spaces are currently closed until spring 2024 due to work restoring the former St John’s Church building.

Our latest virtual gallery tour was recorded in July 2022 –  New Icons, one of the UKs biggest ever exhibitions documenting the Street Art movement, and artists that influenced or are associated with it.
