Malvern Civic Society: What we do


The Society has an active social and educative programme that aims to entertain and inform our members.We do not concentrate exclusively upon Malvern but take a broad view of the region and beyond.

  • We hold monthly meetings with speakers talking on a wide variety of topics. Our talks are usually held in Eden Church Conference Centre, Grovewood Road, WR14 1GD (off Townsend Way), close to the Malvern Spa Hotel and new Premier Inn at 7.30 pm. Refreshments are available before the meetings, from 7.00 pm. There is an admission charge of £2 for members and £4 for non-members. Details are given on the events page.

  • We have coach excursions and local visits to places of historic and cultural interest.

  • We have a programme of monthly country walks that enable members to meet together and broaden their knowledge of the area.

  • In the summer the Society's own guides lead weekly town walks.

  • We publish a magazine called "Bandstand" which we e-mail and deliver or post to all members The AnnualReport forms part of the October edition.

  • In recent years the Society has organised a very successful Civic Week in partnership with other organisations.

  • The Society has an annual Civic Award Scheme to promote good quality design in the Malvern area.

  • Our Planning Sub-Committee meets regularly throughout the year, keeps a watchful eye on all new planning applications and opposes proposals that are considered insensitive or inappropriate.

  • The Society has other working groups, including our Programme Sub-Committee, our Strategy Group, the Friends of Malvern's Railway and the Friends of Malvern's Cemeteries, which also meet regularly.

  • We are building an archive of documents and materials relating to the Society since its foundation.

  • The Society publishes a growing list of booklets written by members on various aspects of Malvern's heritage.

  • The Society has erected a growing number of blue and green plaques commemorate famous people who have lived in Malvern.

  • We give financial support to local causes such as "Bands in the Park", "Malvern in Bloom" and the "Autumn in Malvern Festival".
