These creative afternoons are inspired by artwork in our gallery and the heritage of Bluecoat’s building, so enjoy looking at the exhibition or learning more about our history and then create something of your own to take away. Activities are always changing which means you can expect something different every time you join us. This is a free drop-in session, so whether you want to spend a few hours here or just need a quick activity to break up a shopping trip, Explore is the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

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.  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.
