It is described as a new business start-up that has created an art gallery, workshops, café and a gift shop on the corner of the Market Place and Spring's Parade.
The "wider project" is looking at creating an additional four new jobs.

Councillor Liz Redfern, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “This is fantastic that yet another business is benefiting from the Regional Growth Fund. Byrom & Steel is a wonderful company that shows great promise through creating jobs and providing creative workshops – it is a real boost for Brigg.
“It’s essential that we support local businesses, which is why the North Lincolnshire RGF programme continues to commit funding to support new and existing businesses to invest and grow in North Lincolnshire.”
Julie Steel, of Byrom & Steel Limited, said: “The Regional Growth Funding has enabled Byrom & Steel, a privately funded enterprise to progress with our creative art, craft and photography workshops earlier than anticipated. It has provided us with much needed funding to buy furniture and equipment to run the courses, and has helped towards employing two extra full time posts to run them.
“The courses have been received with much anticipation and enthusiasm from the local area. We are grateful for the help and funding received to run the courses and progress the business earlier than originally planned.”
