Liverpool’s creative hub, Bluecoat showcases talent across visual art, music, dance, live art and literature.

As the most historic building in Liverpool’s city centre, 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 £14 million re-development by Rotterdam architects Biq Architecten with a stronger mission than ever to engage, innovate and excel.

Bluecoat believes everyone can craft and be creative and it is its aim to provide a space where creativity can flourish and be shared.

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.
