Malvern Civic Society Events

Coronavirus Update

The pandemic is still with us and influencing how, and when, we can offer our events, which again may be subject to change at short notice.

Our monthly Newsletter for members will contain details of all forthcoming events in that month and is also an important source of information about any changes made necessary by the Covid-19 situation. Changes will also be posted on the website and those who have pre-booked for visits will be notified individually.

Booking

This year, we are changing our booking arrangements and moving to an online platform, TicketSource, which will be used for our country walks, town walks, local visits and coach/rail excursions.

We are an active society with a full programme 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,  please click here.

Monthly Talks

Monthly talks are held on the second Friday of each month and begin at 7.30pm. In January and February, these are being provided via Zoom, at no charge; we will recommence talks face-to-face when it is safe to do so and refreshments will provided from 7pm, included in the charge of £2 for members and £4 for non-members.
Please check the Newsletter or this website for details of the venue.

Country Walks

There will be eight Country Walks during 2022, taking place on a mixture of Saturdays and Thursdays during March to October and finally a post-Christmas walk on Thursday 29th December. The walks on Saturdays will start at 10am and  the Thursday walks will begin at 2pm. There will be a mix of demanding, moderate and relatively easy walks. There is no charge for participating in our walks and details of each walk will be given in the Society’s monthly email to members and on the website.  However, walks should be booked via TicketSource.

For further information, please contact Clive Rayment on countrywalks@malverncivicsociety.org.uk.

Local visits

Local visits involve using your own transport or a car share and we ask that bookings are made at least four weeks in advance using TicketSource.

Weekly Town Walks

Our weekly walks around Great Malvern run from April to September. 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.  Tickets are available online from Ticketsource or directly from the TIC.  As group sizes are limited, booking in advance is recommended to avoid disappointment.  Note that TicketSource bookings close at noon on the day before the walks and there may be tickets available from the TIC when the TicketSource allocation has been sold.  
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. 
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 2019.
