Derek Jarman Pocket Park - The Manchester Flower Festival 2023 (Extended Opening Hours 26th-29th May)

26th May 2023, Manchester Art Gallery

Event Full Details:

Pop-in to see the Derek Jarman Pocket Park at Manchester Art Gallery at its blooming best for The Manchester Flower Festival 2023 (26th-29th May). The park will be open from 10am-5pm every day during the show and is free to visit.

The space, which opened in July 2022, takes inspiration from artist, gay rights activist and gardener Derek Jarman’s celebrated garden in Dungeness. It has been designed, planted and is looked after by a group of Pride In Ageing (50+) volunteer gardeners, and provides a vibrant space at the entrance to the gallery for the people of Manchester and the wider world to come together, relax, share ideas and enjoy a taste of “immersive nature” in the centre of the City.
