Malvern Concert Club

Club Trips from Malvern to Symphony Hall, Birmingham

In a normal season we offer coach trips from Malvern to Symphony Hall. These are either afternoon and evening CBSO concerts. They 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.

For afternoon concerts, the coach leaves Malvern at 11.30am: this allows time for pre-concert refreshments and attendance at the free pre-concert event. For evening concerts, the departure time will be announced later.

Prices and Tickets

The concerts details are given below. Tickets can vary in price but generally start from £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 varies between concerts but there will be seats both in the stalls and in the circle.
