Details

The 800-seat Festival Theatre is famous for its programme of top touring drama and musicals.

Nestling at the foot of the Malvern Hills, Malvern Theatres is a major centre for the arts in the West Midlands. Home of the famous Malvern Festivals, founded by Bernard Shaw and Barry Jackson in 1929 and in 1998 re-opened after a £5million lottery refurbishment.

Hailed both locally and nationally as a model of artisitic and architectural excellence, Malvern Theatres boasts a diverse programme of drama, comedy, music and dance and is certainly successful at attracting world-famous names. The internationally acclaimed new production of Waiting for Godot starring Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Simon Callow and Ronald Pickup opened at Malvern Theatres. This highly-anticipated play was both a box office and critical success, drawing to Malvern visitors from all over the country before the play departed on a sell-out tour and extended West End run.

These acting giants were just the latest in a long line of internationally renowned film stars to appear at Malvern: a line-up that includes Joan Collins, Charlton Heston, Richard Dreyfuss, Jerry Hall, Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland among others.
