'Ever since its first concert on 31 October 1903, Malvern Concert Club, founded by Sir Edward Elgar, has been a cornerstone of musical life in Worcestershire. Over one hundred years later, today’s Concert Club is proud to continue that tradition of bringing the best chamber music to this part of the country. Whilst grounded in the tradition of the string quartet, each season brings a varied selection of music for small ensemble, with and without keyboard, and voice. Our performers are British and overseas musicians of international standing, with a balance of established artists and promising newcomers.'

Dates from 1922: ‘Our repertoire is large and our library contains over 300 titles. We perform music from TV and film as frequently as musical showstoppers. We sing great Welsh male voice choir classics as well as music of the masters, sixties classics, pop, and songs with strong African rhythms. The full blooded sound of sea shanties contrast with the close harmonies of barber shop and, of course, Christmas provides us with an array of much loved pieces to relish and share. We love and enjoy our singing whether the music is pleasingly straightforward or satisfyingly challenging. New members are always welcome – please see our Contacts page ... or turn up at any Rehearsal!’

Malvern Theatres presents over 600 live performances a year attracting some 300,000 visitors. We screen over 700 film showings each year to an audience of over 70,000 film lovers but the shows are only half the story. Through our Engagement & Creative Learning programme, we work with people of all ages and all abilities, including individuals with a variety of disabilities and complex conditions, to provide experiences which will engage, inspire and empower individuals for life. We successfully achieve all of the above with less than 1% of annual turnover publicly funded, and the vision of our trustees and staff is to become one of the few financially independent theatres in the UK.’
