The Didsbury Arts Festival, taking place in June, is set to be a highlight of the cultural calendar. The event aims to promote local creative artists from various backgrounds and disciplines. This year’s event is set to have more of a personal touch, as the closing weekend will feature a cultural trail featuring arts, music, and performance. For this, local artists are being asked to open their studios to the public. But here’s where it gets really innovative: Didsbury residents are also invited to have their homes become part of the festival. Volunteers’ homes will host art collections, concerts, and even become the venues for plays. Those brave enough to let the throngs of bespectacled arty types in their personal domains should contact the festival organisers before the end of this month. Contact details are below.
