Visit North Lincolnshire Today!

Arts and entertainment Culture

Here in North Lincolnshire we have a passion for the arts. Inspired by the rich landscape, colourful festivals and the gentle pace of life, many artists have made the area their home.

At Ropewalk Contemporary Art and Craft, on the waterfront at Barton, ropes were once made for the conquest of Everest, but now the gallery is home to high quality craftwork. Over 80 regional and nationally acclaimed artists exhibit here. It's a fantastic place for contemporary ceramics, glassware, textiles, jewellery and watercolours.

20-21 Visual Arts Centre is built around the beautiful St John's Church. The stylish galleries have an inspiring programme of art and craft exhibitions from acclaimed artists. Relax in the cafe and treat yourself to unique hand-made jewellery, cards, prints and glassware in the shop,

Creative workshops are held at both Ropewalk and 20-21 Visual Arts Centre - make new friends as you learn a new skill. These artist-led courses range from life drawing to felt making. Book a weekend break and treat yourself!

The Vue 7-screen cinema in Scunthorpe is the place to catch the latest film release. The Plowright Theatre has a programme of professional and amateur productions and during the summer months outdoor theatre and arts weeks are held throughout the region - check out our events pages to find out more.
