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 22 June - 30 June 2019. The festival theme will be Roots. If you would like to join the 2019 team, please get in touch.



Sat 27th and Sun 28th June 2015. 

For the first time as part of our 2015 Festival, Didsbury residents are invited to transform their homes into temporary art galleries and performance spaces during Didsbury Arts Festival 2015. As part of this years festival theme In-between Places, the art will be poping up all sort of unsual loacations celebrating Didsbury's suburban possition.

If you are an artist based in Didsbury, with a studio you would like to open to the public, we would love to hear from you.  The same goes for any musicians or performers who would like to host an event in their own living rooms.  Or maybe you are not an artist yourself, but would like to open up your house and host someone else’s artwork or performance?  If so, please get in touch now.

The proposed opening hours during the weekend are between 10am and 5pm (tbc). 

Artists are encouraged to host exhibitions, provide workshops, talks, or performances and other related events.

The trail will be curated by the festival team and each artist and location will feature within this years brochure. 

Following your submissions, the interested artists and home exhibitors will have an opportunity to meet, ask questions and discuss details at the end of May. 

If you have are interested in taking part and have not been in touch already or would like to find out more contact info@didsburyartsfestival.org now.

We will complete this part of the programme by the end of March.
