Great Malvern Food Festival
Now in its ninth year, the annual Great Malvern Food Festival attracts around 6,000 visitors and has to be added to every food lovers’ diary!
The 2019 Great Malvern Food Festival is kindly supported by Audley Ellerslie and Aldwyn’s at Ellerslie Restaurant* and takes place on Bank Holiday Monday 27th May in the very heart of Great Malvern set beneath the backdrop of the stunning Great Malvern Priory.
The Great Malvern Food Festival is an artisan festival – only selling the very best in locally sourced food and drink from a 50-mile radius.

On the edge of the Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies Audley Ellerslie retirement village. Three Victorian mansions form the centrepiece of the village, converted into 101 one, two and three bedroom properties, all finished with SieMatic kitchens and Villeroy & Boch bathrooms.
At the heart of the village, and open to local Malvern residents, you’ll find the Audley Club with amenities to rival any boutique hotel, including a pool, gym, beauty treatment rooms and Aldwyn’s Restaurant & bar, all on your doorstep to use as you please.
