Taking pride of place in the heart of Malvern, the Three Counties Showground is a much loved venue in the local area. Hosting over 250 days of events throughout the year, the Three Counties Showground offers something for everyone. Covering an impressive 90 acres of land in the Outstanding Area Of Natural Beauty in the Malvern Hills, the ground has been holding events since 1958. The very first event that took place was attended by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and paved the way for thousands more events to take place at the Worcestershire showground. As a famed staple in our humble town of Malvern, we are shining the spotlight on the Three Counties Showground and their upcoming events.
Countrytastic is an annual event at the Three Counties Showground and this year it is coming back on 9th April. Between 10am and 5pm, you can enjoy the action packed, hands on event that is perfect for all the family. Conveniently taking place in the Easter break, children and adults of all ages can enjoy food, farming and the beautiful countryside. Tractor and Trailer Rides take place throughout the day, as well as other events such as Pottery Workshops, a Play Barn and Severn Trent’s Wonderful Water Tour. The farmyard friends of Countrytastic will be there to meet and greet little ones, with local farmers bringing along pigs, sheep, goats, cattle and much more.
The RHS Malvern Spring Festival is a delightful weekend for garden and nature lovers alike. This year the annual event is taking place on the May bank holiday, starting on the 7th May 2020. One highlight of this year’s event is Lesley Garrett & English Symphony Orchestra on the VE day Anniversary on Friday 8th May. A last night of the Proms style performance will be held by Worcestershire’s own English Symphony Orchestra, led by soprano Lesley Garrett CBE. Other highlights heading to the Three Counties Showground this Spring include Jo Whiley’s Garden Party, the Floral Marquee and Show Gardens.
The Royal Three Counties Show is one of the most anticipated events at the Three Counties Showground. In 2020 the show is returning on 12th June for a weekend of fun-filled events that are not to be missed. Last year, highlights included the Wellington Boot Theatre, Gardening Hub and The Red Devils show. You can learn everything there is to know about farm life at the Farming Village, and meet four-legged friends at the Fur, Feather & Farm area. Some of the finest produce from across the Three Counties are available to buy and try throughout the show, including the Cider Festival and Cheese and Dairy Produce Show.
The Malvern Autumn Show promises to be a weekend of fun for all the family. It is the ultimate harvest festival and takes place every September at the Three Counties Showground. You can marvel at the UK National Giant Vegetables Championship, where growers battle for the heaviest or longest vegetables. New to 2020 is the Malvern Gin Show, showcasing many gin producers from the three counties and beyond. The Food & Drink Hall serves only the Best of British, the perfect place to discover delicious treats from artisan producers.
