Elgar’s music is woven into Worcestershire, with pieces such as ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and ‘Enigma Variations’ still capturing the public’s interest.

Just three miles from Worcester, the Elgar Birthplace Museum in
Lower Broadheath is doing something a little different than usual for the Summer Holidays. From Saturday 23rd July to Sunday 4th September, Activity Stations will be set up around the site comprising of a variety of games and a colouring station for families to enjoy! Families can also enjoy the Jubilee Garden which has outdoor musical instruments and a variety of Victorian games to play.

This event is Free with museum admission and is available during open hours
(11am to 5pm, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues) throughout the Summer Holiday period.
Further information about the Museum and their full events programme can be found on the museum’s website under Events at

The museum will also be running a Musical Melodies throughout this period encouraging children to learn about Elgar’s music. There are two trails – one for younger (3-6) and one for older (7+) children. The trail will take families through the Elgar Centre museum and Birthplace Cottage where, once complete, they will win a small prize!

Alex Chatwood, Administrator at the Elgar Birthplace Museum said “Due to the length of the holiday time, we wanted to connect with families who visit us every day of the holidays instead of just for one day events. We hope that these Activity Stations will help children to engage and learn about different aspects of Elgar’s life and music.”

Their general opening hours are Friday to Tuesday, 11am to 5pm (last admission 4.15pm). For further information please contact the Museum on: 01905 333224 or email
