Liverpools centre for the contemporary arts, the Bluecoat showcases talent across visual art, music, dance, live art and literature.
As the most historic building in Liverpools city centre, the Bluecoat has four galleries. It houses a creative community of artists and businesses and runs a participation programme with local communities.
In March 2008, the revered arts centre re-opened after a Ł14 million re-development by Rotterdam architects Biq Architecten with a stronger mission than ever to engage, innovate and excel.
The Bluecoat believes everyone can craft and be creative and it is our aim to provide a space where creativity can flourish and be shared.
The Bluecoat provides a creative hub for people to meet, talk, work, perform, question, create, craft, display and enjoy themselves. And a relaxing garden situated at the rear provides the ideal location to enjoy a beer, wine or soft drink in the summer. The Bluecoat also has Explore, a set of free family craft activities taking place over the weekend.
