The Didsbury Christmas website has been created by Didsbury Traders Association, a collective of businesses of all shapes and sizes. What unites them (apart from their location) is a desire to work together to help make Didsbury a nicer place for everyone.

We feel blessed to work in Didsbury, with its village atmosphere and brilliant people. We have vibrant high street scenes in Didsbury Village, West Didsbury and East Didsbury. We believe Didsbury offers more choice than any part of Manchester outside the city centre.

We want Didsbury to continue to be a place where people are happy and have a great quality of life. We want people to be proud of where they live, because we live here too! Didsbury Traders support, assist and sponsor a year-round calendar of projects and events; from Didsbury Festival to Didsbury in Bloom. As well as hosting events, donating prizes and helping to fill Didsbury with flowers, we also help light it up at Christmas.

We encourage and welcome people who want to do business here; we challenge and liaise with police and councillors about crime, anti-social behaviour and other issues. We fight Didsbury’s corner and promote the area to potential visitors.

So shop local this Christmas – you’ll meet a wonderful array of products, services and people – and because they’re your friends and neighbours, our members really care sincerely about giving you good service. 

We’d like to wish all Didsbury residents a very happy Christmas and a brighter 2022!

Didsbury Traders is open to anyone who does business in Didsbury; from sole trader start-ups to major employers. We meet monthly (and not always in pubs!), we get things done and we don’t wear suits. If you can’t make meetings, that’s fine: you’ll get all the news and opportunities to get involved through our minutes. Join us. You know it makes sense.
