All ages welcome.

Sat 17 - Sun 18 March / 1pm -4pm / Free, drop-in.

Join us for a special family weekend to celebrate 10 years since we re-opened the Bluecoat Gallery in 2008. We'll be taking a look back at exhibition highlights from the last ten years with fun, creative activities suitable for all the family.

On Saturday.... We'll be inspired by 2008's Mr Roscoe's Garden, to create our own tropical flora alongside 2012's Galapagos, looking at some of the interesting and unusual creatures that live on those remote islands. There'll be drawing activities linked to 2009's End of the Line exhibition and we'll be saying howdy again to 2011's Honky Tonk exhibition with a look at Country and Western music from America. All accompanied by a special dance and movement session led by dance artists from Liverpool Improvisation Collective inspired by our 2010 Underwater exhibition.

On Sunday.....Take a look back our Whistler exhibition from 2014 and cast your ears back to 2015's Listening exhibition to create artworks inspired by sound. Recently, we've held exhibitions designed for and created by children and these will be our inspiration for playful artworks and games. Our special storytelling sessions at 2pm and 3pm will revisit our 2013 exhibition, 3am with tales about things that go bump in the night.

On the Sunday, please book through Tickets and Information for our storyteller sessions. For the rest, just turn up and join in!
