Family Weekend

  • Sat, 09 Jun 2018 - Sun, 10 Jun 2018
  • 1.00 PM - 4.00 PM
  • Tickets: Free, drop-in

Bluecoat’s popular Family Weekends return with activities inspired by our exhibitions and the history of our iconic building - creative fun led by Bluecoat artists and dancers from Liverpool Improvisation Collective. 

Join us for a carousel of activities inspired by Blue Room; Bluecoat’s inclusive arts programme.

Blue Room artists have selected their highlights from the past decade of art-making and the exhibitions displayed in our gallery. Activities will include creating insect hotels, flying saucers and alchemy masks. We'll have different activities on each day so join us for one, or both!

Sat 9 Jun - Sun 10 Jun / 1pm - 4pm 


Take a break in our Upstairs Bistro or Espresso Cafe

As well as being a centre for the contemporary arts, Bluecoat is the perfect location for fresh, local food and drink, right in the city centre. Our Upstairs Bistro serves hearty, warming comfort food, with a menu inspired by Bistro Classics; a return to the most popular dishes we have served over the years, including Fish & Chips, Sausage & Mash and Scouse:

The Bistro is located on the first floor. The lift to the Bistro can be found in the Vide exhibition display area. 

If you are in a bit more of a rush, drop by to our Espresso Cafe located in the ground floor Hub. We offer barista coffee, leaf teas, craft ales, wines and soft drinks. We have a wide selection of freshly made sandwiches, salads, homemade cakes and biscuits.  If the sun is shining take your food and drink outside and relax in our beautiful garden, which offers a peaceful retreat from the summer crowds. 


Family Friendly

Bluecoat is a family-friendly venue with ground floor baby-changing facilities and we are a registered Breastfeeding Welcome venue.  Visit our exhibition, play in the garden, follow our gallery trail and join in our family-friendly activities. Every Saturday Explore offers free, fun, creative activities for all the family. Plus our Children's Corner provides activities to keep you and your little ones happy with self-guided activities and storybooks.
