About

A Grade I listed, 300 year old building in the heart of Liverpool’s city centre, the Bluecoat offers a year-round programme of visual art, literature, music, dance and live art.

In addition, the Bluecoat is home to a wide range of artists and creative businesses, ranging from jewellery and ceramic ware at the internationally recognised Display Centre, to hand-made accessories, boutique clothing and specialist hand-engraving and silversmith services.

Visitors to the Bluecoat are welcome to engage in exhibitions, participate in performances, relax in the tranquil garden with a coffee and a cake from our Espresso bar, or indulge in a delicious, locally sourced meal in the beautiful Upstairs bistro.

The Bluecoat offers something for all the family – the garden, courtyard and galleries are the perfect place to bring your little ones to explore (and baby changing facilities are available).

Explore our free art Saturday activities for all the family, or take our heritage trail and learn more about the Bluecoat’s history.

    Lovely old school building restored as a thriving Arts centre & function space, you can still imagine the schoolchildren of the 1800’s tripping down the lane. Read full review
