Heritage Weekend

Celebrate Bluecoat’s 300th birthday as part of national Heritage Open Days

Bluecoat is 300 years old! Celebrate with us as we open our doors for a week filled with heritage-inspired events and activities for all the family.

Book now for one of our free heritage tours to discover the architecture and history of Bluecoat, plus go behind the scenes to view our artist studios. Immerse yourself in POOL (Fri 8 – Sun 10 Sep) by INHABIT artist Mary Prestidge, an installation inspired by Bluecoat’s hidden space which was once a swimming pool used by members of an arts community based in the building.

On Sat 9 Sep drop into Explore (1-4pm) for free family activities that will inspire your young artist to watch, play, read and make in this special heritage inspired session.
