Didsbury Arts Festival

Didsbury Arts festival is a volunteer led multi arts festival celebrating creative culture in Didsbury, through working with local, national and international artists. 

We are a biennial festival. The next edition will take place from 24th June - 2nd July 2017. The festival theme will be Roots. If you would like to join the 2017 team, please get in touch.

As part of our commissioned projects this year we’re looking for food that tells a story for a special project as part of Didsbury Arts Festival.  Participants are needed to help host a series of small dinner parties celebrating their food and the stories behind them.

We’re not necessarily looking for the most talented chef, but definitely want to meet people with a special recipe and a unique story behind it

It might be:

A recipe that’s been handed down through generations

A special birthday meal

A dish a loved one taught you to make

The first thing your partner every made you

A dish that has come from a faraway place

A taste that takes you back in time


Come along to find out more to our first (very informal) session on Sunday 14th May, 2-4pm at Food Sorcery at the Waterside Hotel, Didsbury – and bring your dish!

Book your place by contacting Ruth and Rebecca on hello@xplusyequals.co.uk – and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
