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.

    This is one of Liverpool's oldest buildings and I visited as my wife's grandad used to go to school here. Now a multi functional space for shops galleries and exhibits. Well worth a visit. Read full review

    such a haven to escape the bustle of the shopping streets outside. It is elegant and tasteful, good cafe, the shop is full of creative art pieces to buy. Go with a book and sit in the quad. Read full review
