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. One of the original aims of the Didsbury Parsonage Trust has been to keep the concept of art exhibitions alive in
The Parsonage by encouraging local artists to exhibit their work here.
On weekdays and Saturdays the rooms are often booked for classes and events: if you are making a special trip for a particular exhibition, you can ring us on 0161 445 7661 to check if the gallery is free.
All exhibitions are normally free to see all day on Sundays.
Notes for exhibitors:
Please watch our video which gives advice on how best to hang your pictures from the picture rails in our galleries:
Our galleries are booked up to the end of 2021 and the waiting list for 2022 is now closed until further notice.
The Parsonage is closed until further notice
The Local Primary Schools Spring Open Art Show has been put up at the Parsonage, as scheduled. Because you can’t come in to see it, we have prepared presentations to share with you: see below.
The children's art will stay up during the period of closure, and will be in place when we re-open.
All exhibitions for this year will be rescheduled and we will contact exhibitors as soon as possible with new dates.
Thank you for all your support.
