Great Malvern – The Malvern Theatres

Make a weekend of your trip to Malvern Theatres by checking into a sumptuous hotel or hiring out your own luxurious apartment. Book one of the unforgettable suites at Stanbrook Abbey, a historic 16th century monastery which has been converted to an extremely high standard into a glam 70 bedroom hotel. Closer to the action is accommodation at The Abbey Hotel, The Great Malvern Hotel and The Mount Pleasant. If you want to live like a local in the centre of Great Malvern try the beautifully furnished apartment The Escape at Number 42 just 5 minutes walk from the theatre.

Based in the heart of Great Malvern the Malvern Theatres hosts world class theatre, an eclectic range of films as well as theatre tours, classes and talks. From incredible music tributes to Shakespeare to classic Gilbert and Sullivan operas you will find something to entertain you in this popular Victorian Era theatre. Grab a drink in the light and spacious theatre bar before, during or after your show or head into Great Malvern to augment your evening with a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants. Great Malvern’s restaurants are used to theatre bookings so will have you well fed and watered before your show and welcome you back for desert or to finish your bottle of wine afterwards. Continue your evening at art-deco style cocktail bar The Water Cure or make the most of the last light evenings with a pint in The Weavers spacious courtyard.
