Theatre, Arts & Music

The Malvern Theatre often hosts first-run shows before going on to the West End and Huntington Hall based in Worcester has a varied events calendar with big name comedians often testing their new material out here.

The county’s market towns have given rise to a number of Food and Drink Festivals and Events and there are numerous Arts and Craft Centres where you can see  craftsmen involved in glass blowing, silk making, pottery and painting.

The Hive, Worcester’s joint University and Public Library is also worth a visit, located in a new iconic building  overlooking the River Severn which is a showcase for sustainability and houses the County’s archive and archaeology.

As the birthplace of Elgar, Worcestershire is well known for its Music Festivals. You can see a variety of young and old musicians perform at the Worcester Music Festival or see folk, jazz and blues played in festivals in Upton. The most famous county festival is the Three Choirs Festival, which takes place every three years in Worcester during the summer, and is one of the world’s oldest classical choral music festivals.
