Heritage Open Days

Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture. Every year for four days in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences, all for free!

Celebrate the festival here at Bluecoat as we step back in time and open our doors for several days filled with heritage-inspired events and activities for all the family.

At Bluecoat you can embark on free tours of our hidden histories and uncover the secrets of our iconic Grade One listed building, the oldest in Liverpool City Centre.

On Sun 9 Sep, join Bluecoat Artistic Director Bryan Biggs as he presents on this new Heritage Lottery-funded My Bluecoat website.

Then on Sat 15 Sep we will be providing heritage activities for all the family. Travel back in time and learn about Bluecoat’s rich history through creating and making.
