Children will come out of these sessions more confident with character designing and making silly and fun drawings. There will be a range of activities for children to choose from so they feel comfortable.

This event is part of our summer family events programme which has been chosen by children from Holy Cross School in Liverpool.

For four weeks throughout the summer holidays, you and the family can enjoy FREE storytelling, music, comedy for kids, designed to engage children of all ages.

Meet Luan

Howdy! I'm Luan, a wholesome illustrator spreading love and good vibes wherever I go. My workshop sessions will always involve support and encouragement, I believe anyone can create art!

"I am so excited to learn new things! Whenever I do workshop sessions with children I always come out learning new things, wether it's art related or Minecraft knowledge."

What is 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.

This summer the sculpture is becoming a stage for our entire family events programme!
