Welcome to Wythenshawe Hall
Wythenshawe Hall former home of the Tatton family for over 600 years, and now owned by Manchester City Council. The Hall, and the surrounding 250 acres of park land, were given to the city by Lord and Lady Simon in 1926, to be enjoyed ever after by the people of Manchester and beyond. The Hall served as an art gallery and museum until its closure in 2010; with the help of the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall volunteer group, which was established in 2012, the Hall is once again open to visitors to explore this much-loved landmark of Wythenshawe.

Learn about your local Manchester History when we welcome back heritage artist Jen Reid as she delivers her talk on the Peterloo Massacre. Jen will give an insight into this defining moment in Manchester’s history when 60,000 people joined together in St. Peters Fields for a peaceful rally. To accompany our Peterloo theme, contemporary “Banner Man” Ed Hall will be holding a banner making workshop as we ask you to help us design a banner for Wythenshawe Hall. Plus lots more!
