Bluecoat

Attraction in Merseyside

Bluecoat

Bluecoat is the oldest Grade 1 listed building in central Liverpool and re-opened in March 2008, after a £14.5m redevelopment, as a major landmark on the UK map of contemporary culture. The Bluecoat uses its spaces to showcase talent across all creative disciplines including visual art, music, literature, dance and live art and is a hub for new talent, providing studio spaces for artists within a unique creative community. Surrounding the front courtyard and the garden, independent retailers offer beautifully designed, hand-made gifts. You can grab an illy coffee, a Jing leaf tea, sandwiches and soup from Espresso in the Hub, or located on the first floor, Upstairs at Bluecoat offers locally produced, seasonal food together with a great wine list and children’s menu. Spaces are also bookable for events, meetings, training sessions or receptions. Add delicious catering to Liverpool’s most iconic backdrop and find out how our resident artists and creative businesses can make your event unique.

Author's Review

The Bluecoat is far more than just an event space and as far as contemporary arts is concerned, it is an Liverpool institution and one that couldn’t easily be replicated anywhere else. Just exactly when the Beatles were rocking the scene at the cavern club in the 60’s, literally only a short distance away from this iconic building, the Bluecoat was having exactly the same effect on art lovers from all over the world. The experienced team here at the Bluecoat, along with thousands of artists whose work has been shown here over the decades, have always been true to the venues core values, equality, diversity and sustainability runs through every brick and nail of this buildings very fabric. With so many events and exhibitions running here on a yearly basis, it’s hard for me to tell you about them all, but I’m probably best directing you to their very informative website, where all the latest goings on are all featured on there.
