Nestled in the beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Malvern, just a stones throw from the Malvern hills, you will find The Fold, a centre for inspiration, creativity and healing. The Fold is a large soil association certified organic farm blessed with publicly accessible nature trails taking in woodland, a small lake and a riverside walk. The Fold Café serves up breakfast, light lunches and a vast array of delicious cakes, barista coffee and other beverages with indoor and outdoor seating. Surrounding the café you will discover a varied selection of artisan studios selling hand crafted goods and offering workshops and craft classes.
The Fold features a therapy centre, offering numerous holistic treatments and also runs regular classes on Yoga and Pilates, as well as sound baths. Delicious organic vegetables and eggs, produced on site, are available to purchase from the café foyer and visitors are welcome to park in the large car park and spend an afternoon pottering around the cherished land
Events are a core part of life at The Fold and you will always find something interesting happening there, from monthly markets to specialist supper evenings showcasing food by wonderful chefs. The Fold host performances by musicians, talks on all manner of environmental and well-being subjects and have recently launched ‘Friday Chill Out Café’ which runs monthly and is billed as a sober alternative to the pub.
The next chill out café is scheduled for Feb 17 2023 and runs from 7pm until 10pm. The event will be an open mic night and as a tribute to Valentines day the theme will be ‘Love’. All guests are encouraged to perform whether it’s a poem, a funny story, a song or a sketch. We will be exploring all aspects of love, the light and the dark, from wistful longing, burning desire and joyous union to unrequited adoration, aching pain and embarrassment. All offerings are gratefully received. It will be an informal evening of emotional exploration combined with the chance to socialise and make new friends all whilst enjoying tasty bites, organic cakes and beverages, including the new mocktails available to purchase from our café team. Tickets are £3 available on the door or website linked below.
Additional Chill Out Café dates are scheduled for:
March 17 – Celtic folklore, tayles and songs
April 21 – Poetry and songs to celebrate the rebirth and regeneration of Spring
The Fold has some unique outdoor green spaces available for public camping and private hire from April to September. These spaces are off grid and allow the chance to get back to nature, with the benefit of compost toilets, basic washing facilities and drinking water taps. The Fold is always delighted to host exclusive gatherings in these spaces, including campervan rallies, well-being retreats and even birthday celebrations. Guests can be left to their own devices if they wish, to commune with nature in solitude, or can avail themselves of the multiple well being offerings to compliment their stay and additional venue hire opportunities allowing guests to put on their own music or activities if they wish.
