For art, artists, and you.

Do you love to visit our free exhibitions? Have you spent lots of time relaxing with a coffee in our peaceful garden, or do you bring your children to our free family events?

Whether you’re an artist or an arts lover, the Bluecoat is for everybody. As a charity, we need your support in order to stay inclusive, accessible, and inspirational for all. If you love spending time here, consider becoming a Member.
