Bluecoat Platform

This summer, stop by our front courtyard to explore Bluecoat Platform, a new family-friendly sculpture designed by artists Simon & Tom Bloor with children from Bluecoat's Out of the Blue after school arts club.


All day


Sat 22 May - Sun 26 September 2021

Bluecoat Platform is part of the UK wide Here and Now programme, a celebration of culture within communities as part of the 25th anniversary of the National Lottery.

This new temporary public artwork is inspired by the shapes and structures that the children made in a workshop with the artists. Resembling a scaled-up model of their designs, this playful sculpture creates a physical platform to bring some of Bluecoat’s artistic activities out of the building for you to enjoy this summer.

Get involved with our programme of free events for families, including storytelling, music, comedy for kids and much more, designed with children of all ages in mind.

Performances are reliant on any government restrictions. More information coming soon.

These activities are kindly supported by Liverpool City Council Mayoral Inclusive Growth Fund.
