Malvern Theatres has entertained the people of Worcestershire for over 130 years. Located in the Winter Gardens complex in the town of Malvern, this 800-seater theatre and cinema offers up a vibrant programme of drama, film and music and is the home of the Malvern Festivals. Malvern Theatres was inaugurated in 1885 following a campaign to create a centre for the arts in Malvern. The Festival Theatre quickly became renowned for its associations with George Bernard Shaw, the Irish playwright who was a famous resident of Malvern, and with the composer Edward Elgar. Many of Shaw’s plays, including The Apple Cart and In Good King Charles’s Golden Days, received their English debuts there. After enduring a mixed end to the 1900s Malvern Theatres underwent a lottery-funded refurbishment in 1998 and has remained open ever since. Thanks to its two performance spaces – the 850-seater Festival Theatre and the new Forum concert hall - along with a 302-seat cinema, Malvern Theatres’ range of programming is more diverse than ever before. Whether you’re looking to catch a variety show or the latest flicks, Malvern Theatres is unrivalled for miles.
