Bluecoat Temporary Closure

Bluecoat, like all other arts organisations, will close from Thursday 5th November in line with the national lockdown. We really hope to reopen on Wednesday 2nd December, and will await confirmation from the government on that nearer the time.  

We are very sorry to be closing the doors of our building again. Our visitors have shown us amazing support since we reopened, and we have worked hard to make visiting Bluecoat a safe and enjoyable experience. A huge thank you to everyone who has visited, donated, or followed us online over the last few months, we really appreciate your support.  

Throughout November we will still be bringing you news, film, features from our archive and online events to inspire and uplift you.

Some of our onsite retailers will offer a click and collect service during lockdown. Please contact individual retailers for details

Sign up to our Newsletter and stay in touch to hear about our re-opening plans, along with new film, online events and more. 

We look forward to reopening and welcoming you back to our building as soon as the time is right.
