What’s On This Halloween and Bonfire Night Across The Malverns 2023

Halloween | What's On

Halloween Pumpkin

Dark, misty hills, Victorian tales of untimely deaths, unearthly visions haunting orchards… Spooky season has landed in The Malverns. Get the whole family together (it’s not safe to go alone…), get dressed up in your most terrifying outfits and enjoy a whole host of paranormal activities across this wonderfully witchy season. Or, if all things paranormal aren’t your bag, there are various Bonfire Night and firework events on bringing much needed light and warmth to the increasingly dark November nights.

Whether you’re into real life ghost hunting, or have a host of little ghosts, goblins and ghouls to entertain we have gathered together a list of festive treats to get stuck into…

Halloween Shopping

Many of our local shops are getting in the spooky spirit so why not do some shopping. Mr Thom’s Finest Chocolates, Sweets and Ices in Tenbury Wells, have some terrifyingly delicious treats, including yummy spooky chocolate buns. In Malvern more treats can be found at Chocolate Avenue and Sweet Street.

For witches and warlocks, head to the Witchbox website to purchase a monthly subscription box for that perfect spell.

Where to Find That Perfect Pumpkin

Carving pumpkins is an age-old tradition and seeing their glowing smiles in the dark is one that continues year after year. You can even pick your own pumpkin at Clive’s Fruit Farm and Top Barn Farm and Broadfields Pumpkin Patch.

Bonfire Night

Head up on the hills

Great Malvern is lucky to have an excellent vantage point to make the most of firework’s night in the hills. Wrap up warm, bring a torch and a flask of something hot, and head up to The Beacon for the best views of all The Malvern’s fireworks and bonfires. You are sure to meet a community of others doing the same. Make sure to wear suitable footwear, take care when descending in the dark and bring all your rubbish home with you.
