• 300th anniversary

Bluecoat calls on businesses to get involved in celebrations

Liverpool’s Bluecoat is calling on businesses and individuals to show their support as the cultural venue prepares to celebrate its 300th anniversary.

The Grade I-listed attraction, which is the UK’s oldest arts centre, recently marked 300 years since the laying of the foundation stone when construction began on the historic city centre building and will celebrate the same milestone anniversary since its opening in 2017.

It is said to be lining up a 300-day programme of special exhibitions for the occasion.

Andrew Evans, who is newly appointed as Bluecoat’s head of development and will be playing an important part over the next 18 months in the venue’s plans to mark the anniversary, says: “There are some particularly exciting opportunities on offer with our 300th birthday celebrations next year, and we’re actively seeking individuals and companies to get involved.

“The great thing about a local charity like Bluecoat is that our supporters can come in and see what we do, ask us questions, and see exactly how their money is spent to benefit our city.”
