Outdoor Programme

“Visitors should be able to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors as a counterpoint to what is within.” Margaret Pilkington, Director of the Whitworth, 1935-58

Founded in 1889 as the first English gallery in a park, the Whitworth is a green oasis on the edge of the city centre – a place to learn, play and enjoy art, indoors and out. Our outdoor programme takes our work outside, into the Whitworth Park, whatever the weather.
