The Bluecoat

Situated in the heart of the city, the Bluecoat is one of Liverpool's most distinctive buildings. The widely revered arts centre uses its unique spaces to showcase talent across visual art, music, dance, live art and literature. It also houses a creative community of artists and businesses and runs a participation programme with local communities. In March 2008, the Bluecoat reopened following an award-winning £14.5 million redevelopment designed by BIQ Architecten, Rotterdam.
