Didsbury Arts Festival enters its fourth year of celebrating eclectic, local and artistic talent. Music, dance, comedy, poetry and prose are among the events on offer in the city’s smartest suburb, with many performances being free. Highlights include Les Malheureux, a live ‘microfiction’ collaboration by David Gaffney (pictured) and Sarah-Clare Conlon featuring original music and visual displays (Thu 27 Sep, 8pm at The Albert Club, free), and Flamenco de la Vuelta, a performance by UK-based dancer Gloria Lopez Castejon featuring original music written by singer Chico Pere and guitarist Glenn Sharp (Fri 28 Sep, 7.30pm at Didsbury Baptist Church, £8). The Lantern Procession through Parsonage Gardens (Sat 29 Sep, 7pm – 8.30pm, £2) is also poised to be an ethereal affair, with participants encouraged to create and bring their own lanterns.
