Visit the Derek Jarman Pocket Park at Manchester Art Gallery
Designed, planted and is looked after by a group of Pride In Ageing volunteer gardeners
The Derek Jarman Pocket Park 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 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.
The garden is free to visit and is open from 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Sunday at Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, M2 3JL. No ticket is required.
The Derek Jarman Pocket Park is supported by The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government Pocket Parks, Pride in Ageing at the LGBT Foundation Manchester, The IGNITION Project, United Utilities, Exterior Architecture, Royal Horticultural Society, The Postcode Lottery Trust and Manchester Wellbeing Fund.
