Club Trips from Malvern to Symphony Hall, Birmingham

For the 2017-18 season Malvern Concert Club is organising six coach trips from Malvern to Symphony Hall for afternoon CBSO concerts. These are open to all – whether Club Members or not.

Travel Arrangements

The coach departs from Priory Road Car Park, Malvern to Symphony Hall, with pick-up/set-down at Newland and Powick, according to demand. There are 50 seats (one busload) for each concert and bookings are taken on a first come – first served basis.

For afternoon concerts commencing at 2.15 pm we leave Malvern at 11.30 am and expect to arrive in Birmingham at 12.45 pm: this allows time for pre-concert refreshments and attendance at the free pre-concert talks or performance, if held.

Concert Details

The concerts and prices are given below. All are priced at £37. Note that in all cases there is a £2 supplement for non-members of Malvern Concert Club. Prices include seat in the Centre Stalls, transport and a £1 programme discount voucher for the CBSO concerts. Booking forms and full information are issued two-three months ahead of each date.
