"Our day couldn't have gone better and all the staff involved were friendly, enthusiastic, exceedingly helpful and nothing short of phenomenal".

- Daryl and Claire

Something Old...

Bluecoat is the oldest building in Liverpool city centre, dating back to the early 18th Century. Bluecoat’s also has charming grounds; our stunning garden and Georgian courtyard will provide you with a stunning backdrop to your wedding photographs. Our Grade 1 listed building is an elegant choice for a charming, bespoke wedding.

Something New...

Since the building reopened in 2008 after a programme of conservation, restoration and new build, Bluecoat has established itself as Liverpool’s Centre for the Contemporary Arts. With state-of-the art facilities and flexible spaces, in addition to our leading visual arts programme, we mix historic features with a modern, creative edge.  

Something Borrowed....

Being an innovative centre for contemporary art and performance, we haven’t borrowed much from traditional wedding venues, apart from excellent service, delicious food, incredible attention to detail and undeniable quality.

Something Bluecoat...

If you are looking for something really different, Bluecoat presents a genuinely unique setting and service for your wedding, civil partnership ceremony, and/or reception.
Being creative is what we do best.  To make your big day special, we offer a variety of packages to suit all budgets. We can also work with you to create something bespoke; a drinks reception in the courtyard garden, a wedding breakfast or evening reception in our bright and airy restaurant, with dancing until late in our high-tech performance space. 

Our creative retail partners sell an amazing array of hand-crafted items, such as engraved rings, paper-flower decorations and crocheted wedding bunting. We provide an Event Manager to make sure that you and your guests enjoy a relaxed day of fun and laughter in Liverpool’s most creative setting.
