Club Trips from Malvern to Symphony Hall, Birmingham

For this coming season we are offering six coach trips from Malvern to Symphony Hall – all for afternoon CBSO concerts. These are open to all – whether Club Members or not.

Travel Arrangements

Commandery Coaches will again provide the transport from Priory Road Car Park, Malvern, to Symphony Hall, with pick-up/set-down at Newland and Powick, according to demand. Note that there are only 50 seats (one busload) for each concert and bookings are taken on a first come – first served basis.

The coach leaves Malvern at 1130am: this allows time for pre-concert refreshments and attendance at the free pre-concert event.

Prices and Tickets

The concerts and prices are given below. All are priced at £40. Note that in all cases there is a £2 supplement for non-members of Malvern Concert Club. Prices include seat and transport, and a £1 programme discount voucher for CBSO concerts.

Booking forms, including departure times and prices will be issued 2-3 months ahead of each date. Tickets will also be available online here.

Seating for all concerts will be in the Centre block of Rows L-P of the Stalls (40 seats) and in Rows A and B of the left side (facing the stage) of the Circle (10 seats).
