Reds Gallery: The Boot Room

14 May – 11 September 2011 at The Reds Gallery at the Bluecoat, College Lane

Liverpool Football Club is opening its first photographic print exhibition space, located in the Bluecoat on Saturday 14 May.

‘The Reds Gallery at the Bluecoat’ provides an opportunity for fans and visitors to the city to immerse themselves in specially selected Liverpool FC themes in Liverpool city centre’s historic and creative hub.

The Reds Gallery will be free to enter and open seven days a week, with the first exhibition celebrating key personnel involved in the legendary LFC Boot Room.

Tom Cassidy, Commercial Tourism Manager at LFC, said: “The Reds Gallery at the Bluecoat will provide a much requested City Centre tourist connection for the club. Having decided on the idea a while back we then had to find a venue and the Bluecoat, with its history, culture and location, fits the bill perfectly.
“We are very excited at the potential of this project as there’s huge cross-over between the two organisations and potential exhibition ideas. Visitors can expect a vibrant and entertaining experience which will appeal to non football fans of all ages, in addition to our loyal followers.”

The Reds Gallery will change exhibition every three months. Visitors can expect to see some alternative pieces influenced by acclaimed artists as well as revealing pictures taken by award winning photographer Steve Hale, who followed Liverpool FC for over 30 years.

  1. The spacious gallery for the boot room is pleasant experience. Sign should be placed to let people know that the Bluecoat garden and galleries are up the stairs at the back.
    However, all a little mareed by the dreaded apostrofly grammatical mistakes in tghe explanatory leaflet…

    …”space to keep player’s boots. ” Should be ” players’ “.
    “…player’s were nor allowed into the boot room…”.
    No need for apostrophe.
    “…throughout it’s history…”. No need for apostrophe. Possessive pronoun.

    Is this fault of casual use of spellchecking, or a semi-literate copy-writer?
    Shame on our iconic place to be made to look as though produced by failed GCSE student!


    My boyfriend and I recently purchased a picture from this gallery. After a delay of 2 weeks and chase calls we have just received an extremely poor quality item. We paid £75 which included a good quality picture and the frame displayed in the gallery itself. We have received a dark blurry picture and a broken cheap and nasty frame. The picture has come from “One Vision Imaging” in Coventry and we expect more of the buck passing to them that we have already encountered over the telephone. At these prices LFC need to get a grip on this as I don’t doubt for a minute this is an isolated example. Some xmas present that turned out to be; thanks Red Gallery.
