Club Visits to Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Simon Payton, Treasurer and Membership Secretary, writes:

For the 2016-17 season we shall again offer five coach trips from Malvern to Symphony Hall – three afternoon CBSO concerts and two evening concerts, one by the CBSO and one from Symphony Hall’s own programme.

Commandery Coaches will provide the transport from Priory Road Car Park, Malvern, to the door of Symphony Hall, with pick-up/set-down at Newland, Powick and Whittington roundabout (the latter near M5 J7), 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 we leave Malvern at, and for evening concerts we leave at 4.30 pm: this allows time for pre-concert refreshments and attendance at the free pre-concert talks or performance. Departure times may vary according to the progress of roadworks on the Worcester By-Pass and the M5.

The concerts and prices are given below. All are priced at £35 except for the last one which will be £36. 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 two-three months ahead of each date.


The new season’s concert trips will be published here shortly.

I do hope you will find something of interest in this selection of concerts and will be able to support us.
