We hosted some fun and silly performances from Ugly Bucket.
1pm, 2pm and 3pm on Wed 28 Jul and Thu 5 Aug 2021
Ugly Bucket led high energy, playful sessions with games and activities that encouraged children to get seriously silly! And rumour has it…that there may have been an intergalactic visit from some giant, bizarre, blue aliens!
This event was part of our summer family events programme which was chosen by children from Holy Cross School in Liverpool.
For four weeks throughout the summer holidays, families enjoyed FREE storytelling, music, comedy and more, designed to engage children of all ages.

What was Bluecoat Platform?
Located in our front courtyard, this family-friendly outdoor sculpture was designed by children for children! Our after school arts club Out of the Blue worked with artists Simon & Tom Bloor to come up with this fun, interactive sculpture for the whole family to enjoy.
In Summer 2021, this sculpture became a stage for our entire family events programme!
