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.


After a tremendously successful week of DAF events at the end of June 2013, the DAF team has enjoyed a much deserved summer break. Looking back, the Committee felt that the end of June was a great time to hold DAF and the enthusiasm of the artists and audience was evident from the feedback and from the full seats at most events. Thanks to everyone who supported DAF in 2013, especially the volunteers and organisers, and not least the Committee who all worked extremely hard to deliver the festival, and raise funds.

DAF will be having a year off from a full 9 day festival in 2014 and the next full week long festival will take place from Saturday 20 - Sunday 28 June 2015.

However, there will be things happening over the next 12 months with DAF and the Committee are already thinking about plans for smaller events during the coming year.  Watch this space for details early in the new year.

With best wishes

The DAF Team
