Fundays and Events

Here at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre we offer a number of events and Fundays throughout the year. These are often linked to our exhibitions and are often family orientated. As well as our ARTivities, we have many different activities, often with exhibiting artists.

For further information on any of our upcoming events, email or call 01724 297070.

Join us at 20-21 to celebrate the countdown to the Scunthorpe Christmas Lights Switch-up.

As part of the Road Safety Team’s ‘Bright Seen Safe’ campaign, we are presenting a special “Glow Up” exhibition suitable for the entire family. Be captivated by the giant soft robotic glowing sculpture.

Special later opening times:

  • November 24th, 7:00 PM

On November 25th, we are delighted to be joined by our friends from Dancing Tiger Scrapstore, who have created a unique selfie experience.

Our Café will have extended hours to offer special festive treats and meal deals, ensuring your whole family is well-fed. Take the time to explore the limited edition Christmas gifts available in our gallery shop. And because we are 20-21, there are free crafts for children, providing added entertainment for the little ones.

The event is free and there is no need to book. Don’t miss it!

Join us for a festive edition of Kickback Youth! This event is designed for young people aged 12-18 to come together and participate in various exciting activities. We’ll have music, snacks, and crafts. What’s more, we’re thrilled to have a special workshop by metalwork artist Jim Bond, where you’ll have the opportunity to create artwork that will be displayed in our current exhibition, ‘Swords into Ploughshares, Knives into Jewels.’

The event is free to attend, and there’s no need to book. Just drop by and enjoy the festivities!
