Why join?

As a registered charity, Bluecoat relies on the generosity of its supporters to keep our exhibitions free to enter, ensuring we reach those who are least likely to experience arts and culture.

By joining the Bluecoat Patron scheme you will help us to continue to support new and emerging artists, engage people from all walks of life with the arts through our exciting participation programme, and maintain our beautiful building, the oldest in Liverpool's city centre. 


Bluecoat is a registered charity, number 700862 and a limited company registered in England, number 2246627
