LIGHTNIGHT 2018 AT BLUECOAT
17:00 – 22:00
Family Friendly, Participate
This LightNight, Bluecoat will be embracing the 2018 theme of Transformation, by turning our spaces into a truly immersive, engaging and interactive realm. Family activities will take place from 18:00—21:00 and include masking making and folktale storytelling, which will transport little ones and their adults to a magical and enchanting world.
Between 18:00—18:30 & 19:00—19:30 POP-UP Duets will perform; a series of contemporary dance duets that will transform Bluecoat’s building and exterior spaces into performance for ‘accidental’ audiences. 19:40—20:00 See street theatre from the Dung Beetles’ Cosmic Journey in the courtyard. The gallery will be open until late, with visitors being able to view our spring exhibition from Emma Smith. Euphonia transforms Bluecoat’s gallery into a sonic chamber, enabling the viewer to turn into a participant who is invited to contribute by adding their own voice to the exhibition.
Relax in our garden to the sound of the Halcyon Syncopators (19:45), take part in hands-on screen print activities in the Print Studio and meet the artists who work behind the scenes at Bluecoat (18:00—19:30). We’re opening up our garden bar for the evening, serving up local craft beers, glasses of fizz and soft drinks. Grab some great food for all the family from the BBQ, freshly prepared by the Bluecoat kitchen.
