Festivals around Malvern this Summer

With all this cold and wintery weather we have had recently, it is hard to believe that British Summertime officially starts in less than four weeks. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will soon brighten and we can start to enjoy the first glimpse of spring in the coming weeks. During the spring and summer months, Malvern is filled with exciting festivals and events and offers a jam packed calendar with everything from country shows to music festivals. Here are just a few of the events you can enjoy in the Three Counties in the coming months:

Cheltenham Gold Cup Day

On 16th March 2018 the Cheltenham Gold Cup takes place at Cheltenham Racecourse. It is the climax of the entire jump season and arguable one of the best racing days of the year. The day always has an amazing atmosphere as the horse charge up the famous hill, followed by a lively evening of entertainment in the Final Flight Bar and The Centaur. Both the Guinness Grandstand and Best Mate Enclosure are already sold out, so be sure to buy your ticket soon to avoid disappointment.

British Asparagus Festival

Started in 2006, the British Asparagus Festival takes place over two months and celebrates the growing, harvesting and eating of delicious asparagus. Taking place in the Vale of Evesham from Sunday 23rd April, you can enjoy asparagus related events such as The Great English Asparagus Run, the Asparagus Family Colour Fun Run and the Asparafest Music and Food Festival.

Cheltenham Jazz Festival

Cheltenham has become one of the country’s best-loved jazz festivals, seeing over 20,000 music fans getting into the festival spirit every year. Based at Monpellier Gardens on the May bank holiday weekend, the festival features a feast of free outdoor music, a selection of food and drink stalls and family fun activities. With performances from a mix of international jazz icons, and up-and-coming new artists, it makes for the perfect weekend for jazz lovers.


On Thursday 5th April, the Three Counties Showground in Malvern will once again be hosting CountryTastic. It will be an action packed day with plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for children of all ages. Headlining this year’s show is farmer Adam Henson, from BBC Countryfile and the Cotswold Farm Park.

Whichever festivals and events you choose to attend around Worcestershire in the coming months, be sure to book in at The Abbey for a comfortable place to stay. Book at least 3 days in advance and save up to 20%, we’ll also give you a free drink of your choice as a thank you for booking direct.
