Midsummer Malvern 21-30 June 2019

The underlying theme to this year’s community civic week is MUSIC but there is much more as well. This year we will be raising money to give St Richard’s Hospice as we are supporting their Build 2020 programme.

We start the Week with a Czech evening to celebrate our twinning connection with Marianske Lasne in the Czech Republic. A get-together to taste, drink and enjoy music and film.

There is a walk from Rosebank Gardens to the Beacon, following the Piper. Bring a picnic and enjoy the views from the top and music to fill the air. This event is one of many in support of St Richard’s Hospice so hopefully the evening will be a lovely summer one and many people will come.

There is a local Community Choirs concert in the Forum – we have such talented choirs in our area.  There are two musical events being performed by Malvern St James and Malvern College.   The finale of Midsummer Malvern will be at The Cube when the Worcestershire Youth Jazz Orchestra and Combo Sapiens from Barcelona will show us what the younger generation can do.    A family event, with food available for purchase, this should be a great relaxed evening.


John Harcup will tell us about ‘900 years of Music Making on the Malverns’. 

There is a talk on ‘Trench Life in Silhouette’ an interesting slant on WWI and an unusual talk by Sue Gee, accompanied by Timothy Day on Elgar’s trip up the Amazon and also her book Trio, with musical interludes of Elgar’s Dream Children in Christ Church on Thursday, 27 June at 7.30pm.  

This is a week packed full of events put on by the community of Malvern, visits to places of interest, chance to find out more about places in Malvern, where to enjoy a cream tea, there is something for everyone.  Sporting events are happening – a cricket match and a cycle ride!

All the details are in the Midsummer Malvern Programme, and there will be prompts on our Malvern Civic Society Facebook page.
