1pm, 2pm and 3pm on Wed 28 Jul and Thu 5 Aug

Ugly Bucket will be leading a high energy, playful session with games and activities that will encourage the children to get seriously silly! And rumour has it…that there may be an intergalactic visit from some giant, bizarre, blue aliens!

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 and more, designed to engage children of all ages.

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!
