Monthly Talks

Members listening to talks at the monthly meetings of Malvern Civic Society

The Malvern Civic Society hold monthly meetings with talks from speakers on a wide variety of topics.

Monthly talks are held on the second Friday of each month and begin at 7.30pm.  In the first half of the year, these are being provided via Zoom, at no charge; we will recommence talks at the Eden Centre, Grovewood Road, WR14 1GD (off Townsend Way), close to the Malvern Spa and Premier Inn, when it is safe to do so. At the Centre, refreshments are provided from 7pm and these are included in the charge of £2 for members and £4 for non-members.

Doors open at 7pm and the meeting starts are 7.30pm.

This talk by Chris Gait, a former Consultant Orthodontist and now a Blue Badge Tourist Guide for the Heart of England, will support the Civic Society’s visit to the Worcester Porcelain Museum in September.  In 1751 Dr John Wall established the ‘Worcester Tonquin Manufactory’, which became Worcester Royal Porcelain.  But this was not the only enterprise of the dynamic Dr Wall, as our talk will reveal!
