In 1919, Fletcher Moss left his house and gardens to the City of Manchester, and the Parsonage became the Fletcher Moss Museum and Art Gallery. Many local people have fond memories of the permanently exhibited Turner paintings and various temporary exhibitions held in the building.
One of the original aims of the Didsbury Parsonage Trust has been to keep the concept of art exhibitions alive in The Old Parsonage by encouraging local artists to exhibit their work here. Please see below for our current and forthcoming exhibitions.
Galleries are normally free all day on Sundays.
On weekdays and Saturdays they may be booked for classes and events: if you are making a special trip for a particular exhibition, we suggest you ring us on 0161 445 7661 to check the gallery is free.
Note for potential exhibitors:
We are fully booked up to the end of 2020. If you would like to be considered for 2021, please email us
