The Urban Arts Festival returns to Cleethorpes on 24th/25th September and this year Big Local is sponsoring a North Cleethorpes Fringe event

The Cleethorpes Urban Arts Festival returns for 2022 with a new ‘fringe’ event in North Cleethorpes sponsored by Big Local North Cleethorpes

The popular Cleethorpes Urban Arts Festival returns once again in September 2022 to Cleethorpes (this year known as the Reclaim festival).

Whilst the main Festival takes place around Cleethorpes Leisure Centre as usual, new for this year is a Fringe Festival which will take place around Cleethorpes Library and North Promenade thanks to sponsorship from Big Local North Cleethorpes.

This page has general details about the event, but keep an eye on the organisers Facebook page for regularly updated info about the Festival.

Big Local North Cleethorpes are very pleased to be able to support a North Cleethorpes part to this popular festival this year. We’re expecting this to be a great community event and to get lots of young people interested in art.

See you there!

Urban Arts session for young people at 82 Grimsby Road

After the Festival, at a date to be arranged, we’ll be organising a session led by Lynsey Powles to be held in our yard at 82 Grimsby Road.  This session is aimed at young people so that they can ‘have a go’.

Dates and details will be announced in September. Watch this space.

When and Where?

Sat 24th and Sun 25th September 2022.
The main festival is centred around Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, but the Big Local sponsored Fringe event will be at Cleethorpes Library and along North Promenade.

The main event takes place over two days, but the Fringe event will largely be Saturday 24th.  There will still be art taking place on North Promenade on the Sunday, but the Library events are all on the Saturday.
