Great place to eat
Nov 2019
Great place for lunch with a varied menu. Free entry too.. Often have a range of exhibitions, sometimes interactive which is fun with kids. Theres a small shop selling local artisan work, but keep a check on whats happening and there have been some exciting displays in the past, inc. Grayson Perry's tapestries and more lately an interactive Lego exhibition

Visited to see a Lego exhibition
Oct 2019 • Couples
While in the area we saw there was a Lego exhibition being held at the arts centre, as it was free we decided to visit. We were lucky to find one of the free car parking spaces nearby. The venue is a converted church with an purpose built building attached by a glass walk way. As we had been to see Art of The Brick exhibition I was expecting to see something bigger than it was. There were several exhibits but it only took 15 minutes to look round, there were activities for children to do.
The centre was busy and the cafe seemed popular although we didn’t use it, there was also a small shop which sold a variety of goods. A small arts centre which seemed to have a varied program of events
If there was something on I wanted to see I would visit again

Always a good place to visit
Jan 2020
We visited 20/21 on Tuesday 14th January when preparations for the new exhibition were being started. Although we were ' between exhibitions' there were still lots of interesting smaller items to look at and browse. We had our 4 year old granddaughter with us and the staff on duty made us feel really welcome and invited her to do some creative activities with paper, colouring pens, stickers etc. Our time spent there was very enjoyable and made our otherwise mundane day, special

20 21 Centre LEGO exhibition and Activities Day
Oct 2019 • Family
I took one of my granddaughters to the LEGO exhibition and Activities Day and she really enjoyed it. We spent most of the afternoon there, firstly looking at the exhibition .....and she then created her own Lego masterpiece to enter in a competition. She also made a brilliant mask.
We were pleased to see the whole centre very busy. 20 21 is an excellent place for everyone, with a cafe and a shop also on site.

A lovely space in the middle of town.
Oct 2019
20-21 is a real treat in a town that needs more for people to do. The exhibitions are always good, and often brilliant. We saw the Lego exhibition this weekend, which was genius, and we've seen all sorts of different things in their over recent years. I's good to be able to support people who are trying to do something special in our town and the kids love it.
Take a break from the shopping, open your mind a little and have a breather.

Culture on our doorstep
Oct 2019
Many really interesting exhibitions. Wonderful place to stop for coffee or lunch right in the centre of town. I attended a great glass craft class - I'm just waiting for the next one.
The Lego exhibition at the moment is not to be missed - for young and old alike.

The cafe in this great art centre is clean and comfortable,with staff who meet customers with a friendly welcome.
Reasonably priced food and drink ( best scones in town!) are well presented and quickly served. They cater for all tastes and are child friendly too.

Always fresh, always exciting
Jan 2019 • Solo
I love 20-21. Visit every few months and you’ll be treated to a new experience each time with a new exhibition to dive into. Visit more regularly than that and enjoy the fab cafe and prowl the gift shop.

What I love especially is that there’s no pretentiousness here; you don’t need to know everything (or even anything!) about art to enjoy looking at pretty, cool and interesting things.

There’s so much to do for kids too with free activities and workshops.

It’s the perfect afternoon out in Scunthorpe.
