Liverpool Bluecoat welcomes back visitors

The Bluecoat has reopened its doors to the public after four months.

The School Lane arts centre is welcoming visitors with access to both its galleries and café along with the walled garden.

However, as with other Liverpool attractions which have – or are due to – open over the next few weeks, entry will be by timed ticket so visitor numbers can be controlled.

Visitors are able to enjoy two exhibitions – Jonathan Baldock’s Facecrime and Frances Disley’s Pattern Buffer (above).

Disley's show has been installed with a few minor alterations, including removing tactile elements and the addition of a new ambient soundtrack of calming forest and beach sounds alongside increased numbers of specially chosen plants.

Meanwhile Facecrime features a surreal landscape of totem-like poles which emit various noises, such as giggles and groans, and are adorned with weaving, basketry and glass.

The Bluecoat, which has been shut for the last four months due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions, will initially open from 11am to 4pm on Thursday to Saturday each week.

Centre bosses say they will review the times “periodically and hope to resume our full hours as soon as possible”.

Covid-safe measures include hand sanitiser stations and increased cleaning of busy areas as well as cleaning café tables and chairs between each use.

Face masks are compulsory in line with government rules unless you are exempt.

Free timed tickets are available on the Bluecoat website HERE
