In 1919, Fletcher Moss left his house and gardens to the City of Manchester, and The Old 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.
All our galleries are also used for classes and events:
if you are making a special trip to see a particular exhibition, we suggest you ring us on 0161 445 7661 to check the gallery is free when you visit.
Note for potential exhibitors: We no longer have availability for 2017, but feel free to contact us regarding our waiting list for 2018.
We openly welcome everyone to attend our 'Preview' on Sunday 4 December
