As part of the city-wide celebration Sgt Pepper at 50, the building opens early to salute The Beatles’ celebrated album track Good Morning, Good Morning.

Last summer the art criticism website and research project The White Pube, put an open call for videos made by people without a degree in Fine Art. Bluecoat will be screening the films of these 20 alternative artists.
‘Nanny Cam’ brings together films made by artists in their time working in retail, in the army, and bars. A few are unemployed, while one is a technician and another a nanny.
This event will offer people the opportunity to view film-making through a different perspective.
Thu June 16, 7.30pm
This movement is based on interdisciplinary performance with Jo Blowers and guests, as they tell stories that resonate on a personal and universal level and offer insights into what might happen as we navigate our way between the two. The work plays with the idea of people as objects and objects as performers, the re-enchantment of everyday life, and is a tender, playful and quirky exploration of contemporary culture seen through the eyes of a diverse range of people.
This performance will reflect material gathered from Jo’s Post It sessions, that are taking place at Bluecoat throughout June.
