Midsummer Malvern Festival set to get under way

THE MIDSUMMER Malvern Festival returns to the town between this Saturday and next Sunday, June 25 to July 3.

The one-week celebration of community activity has been organised by the Malvern Civic Society and has been supported by Malvern Hills District Council which has contributed £1,000.

During the week there will be a number of historical guided walks, theatre tours, live music and activities across various locations, including Great Malvern Priory and Malvern Theatres.

Events include an opening ceremony of Jazz in the Park on Saturday, June 25, and The Malvern Hills Trust walk on Tuesday, June 28, which will uncover hidden heritage from abandoned Victorian gardens and donkey sheds to ancient archaeology.

Also taking place during the festival is a Dudley Brook Tree Walk in Priory Park, with over 20 trees planted in Victorian times to see and enjoy.

Malvern Library will be hosting the Changing Face of Malvern Exhibition, which takes a look at Malvern over the past 200 years.

Coun Daniel Walton, Portfolio Holder for Tourism and Economic Development at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “The Midsummer Malvern Festival is a great opportunity to learn more about the people who shaped the history of this area and discover the district’s heritage, whilst also admiring the wonderful landscape, buildings and traditions that we are surrounded by.”

Roger Sutton, from Malvern Civic Society said: “This festival is an opportunity for people of all ages and interests to learn about the work of the Civic Society and the history and heritage of our interesting town.”
