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.

The Bluecoat is also home to a wide range of artists and creative businesses, ranging from jewellery and ceramic wares 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).
