Malvern Autumn Show
27th - 28th Sep 2014 - 4 days to go!
The Malvern Autumn Show is a true celebration of food, the countryside, gardening and nostalgia. After a long year there’s nothing better than enjoying the fruits of the wonderful season. A Show for food and gardening lovers, the event hosts a range of cookery demonstrations, gardening talks, vegetable displays, vintage tractors, crafts and more. Families and friends can enjoy a day out to remember.
There's nothing more rewarding than growing your own fruit, vegetables and plants for a healthy lifestyle. Take inspiration from the feature gardens on display in the Good Life Pavilion this year or head over to the experts at the UK National Giant Vegetable Championships to find out how to grow your very own monster vegetables. Don't forget to stop by the RHS Flower Show to pick up some beautiful plants and check out the magnificent Floral Art exhibition in Wye Hall.
For those looking to recapture the past, then this is just the ticket! Why not pick up your dancing shoes and take to the dance floor! Or if a sedate afternoon tea is more your style, seek refreshment from the vintage tearoom. Visitors can while away the afternoon in the Wartime Pub to the background of vintage vocals, or can drift by the Vintage Pavilion to shop for all the trappings of the thrifty forties, fabulous fifties and swinging sixties.
There's lots to experience at the Malvern Autumn Show, there's something for the whole family! From dog agility and aeroplane stunt shows to poultry competitions, an eclectic mix of entertainment over the weekend for all ages.
Make sure you gather your ingredients or simply make your taste buds melt with the very best of local and regional produce in the expansive Food & Drink areas at the show. There will be a wonderful selection of Britain’s finest foods on offer including delicious cheeses, drink, delicatessen and pastries.
Harvest time is when people have traditionally celebrated the abundance of the land. It's the time of year when home grown fruits, such as apples, pears and damsons, are ready to be collected and other vegetables have started to ripen. It's the perfect excuse to show off British produce!
If you thought that hop picking was the preserve of the Kent countryside, then you might be surprised to learn that more than half of the hops grown in the UK are produced in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire – otherwise known as the ‘Hopshires’.
