Bluecoat is Liverpool's Centre for contemporary arts, the UK's oldest arts centre and Liverpool city centre's oldest building.

We are a haven of peace and creativity in the city and 600,000 people a year visit our galleries, picnic in our garden and join in our activities; which include innovative and exciting programmes for adults with learning disabilities and children from Liverpool's poorest communities.

Our building has survived mobs, storms, fires and several attempts at demolition; and with your generous legacy will be here for the people of Liverpool in another 300 years.

Whatever amount you leave, will help secure this wonderful place for generations to come.
