Autumn in Malvern Festival 2022

25 September 2022 to 30 October 2022

All available dates: 25 September 2022 to 30 October 2022

After a two-year break, owing to Covid 19, the festival returns in October with sixteen distinctive events. A regular visitor to the festival over many years is the European Union Chamber Orchestra who in October perform an attractive programme in the Great Hall at Malvern College. The rarely heard Concerto Grosso by Vaughan Williams is included, marking the 150th anniversary of his birth. Malvern’s distinguished chamber choir Aldwyn Voices is joined by the Coull String Quartet also in the Great Hall at Malvern College. The Quartet performs two brilliantly conceived works, Schubert’s Quartettsatz and Beethoven’s Grosse Fugue. Aldwyn Voices sing Bach’s Lobet den hernn and three great motets by Anton Bruckner. Members of the Jenny Lind Society of Stockholm are visiting to attend the unveiling of a Jenny Lind sculpture in Rosebank Gardens and a concert in Little Malvern Priory; Homage to Jenny Lind

The Swedish Nightingale. The beautiful Grade 1 Listed St Leonard’s Chapel, part of the Beauchamp Community at Malvern Link, hosts a specially devised sequence of words and music by the actor and director Peter Sutton on the sailing of the Mayflower in 1620. Also at St Leonard’s is an illustrated talk by Christopher Somerville based on his book Ships of Heaven - The Private Life of Britain’s Cathedrals. There are talks on Dame Laura Knight by Frances Spalding and A E Housman by Julian Hunt.

Iain Simcock, formerly Organist at the Abbey of St Pierre, Solesmes, France, gives an organ recital of French music at St James’s, West Malvern. There are six exhibitions with free entry at Malvern Library, Malvern Priory, Elmslie House, The Original Artwork Store and along Waitrose Walk in Great Malvern, together with an Arts and Farmers Market in the Priory Churchyard
