Malvern Autumn Show

Malvern Autumn Show
The town of Malvern in Worcestershire, England is an important agricultural and horticultural center. It has been hosting agricultural shows since at least the late 18th century. Twice a year, in spring and in autumn, the Three Counties Agricultural Society organizes agricultural shows representing the counties of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. The Malvern Autumn Show is usually held on the last weekend of September.

The Malvern Autumn Show offers an extensive and exciting program divided into several sections, such as Grow It, Taste It, Relive It, Harvest It, and Experience It. Each section offers an impressive array of activities, from workshops to competitions. Besides, the show has several shopping areas where you can buy various foods, plants and seeds, original artwork and jewelry, handmade arts and crafts, and other goods by local artisans, craftsmen, and designers.

The Grow It section hosts talks and demos by gardening and floral experts, as well as a number of plant shops set up by a selection of nurseries. Main highlights in the Grow It section include the Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show and the CANNA UK National Giant Vegetables Championship.

The Taste It section invites you to sample and/or buy delicious foods and drinks offered by local producers.
