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!
