Coronavirus Update

All major talks and events are cancelled until the beginning of September.  We shall keep the situation under review and update this page accordingly.

We are an active society with a full program of events throughout the year.

All talks, walks, visits and excursions are open to everyone, whether a member of the Society or not. Members do get a discount on some events and there are some member-only events as well. If you are thinking of becoming a member, click here.

Monthly Talks

We hold monthly meetings with speakers talking on a wide variety of topics. These begin at 7pm and are held in the Eden Centre, Grovewood Road, WR14 1GD (off Townsend Way), close to The Malvern (Spa) Hotel and Premier Inn. There is a charge of £2 for members and £4 for non-members — this includes refreshments before each meeting.

Monthly Country Walks

There will be eight Country Walks during 2020 taking place on a mixture of Saturdays and Thursdays during March to July, September and October and finally a Christmas/New Year walk on Monday 28th December. The walks on Saturdays will start at 10am and all the Thursday walks will begin at 2pm. There will be a mix of demanding, moderate and relatively easy walks. Details of each walk will be given in the Society’s monthly email to members and on the website.

Weekly Town Walks

Our weekly walks around Great Malvern run from Easter to Autumn. The Society’s own guides lead the walks and they start from the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) at 10.30am on Saturday and Monday mornings. The fee is £5 per adult.
Holidays
For some years the Worcester-Malvern National Trust Centre and the Malvern Civic Society have arranged a yearly holiday likely to be of interest to their members. For 2020 the visit is to the Châteaux & Gardens of the Loire Valley and is 7 days departing on 17th May 2020 at a cost from £889. The brochure can be downloaded on this page.
Railway Visits

The Friends of Malvern’s Railway Group arranges occasional visits. The last trip was to the narrow gauge Brecon Mountain Railway on Saturday 14th September.
