Something for the weekend

MHDC are putting on a farmers market in the regular Abbey Road, Malvern location on 20 December 2014 – 9am – 5pm.

The market will showcase food producers and purveyors of fine local produce and promises to pull in a crowd and provide an all important last minute Christmas shopping opportunity.

In addition, starting this weekend a free exhibition at Malvern Cube is set to grab the attention of the town in the shape of a carpet forest.

The Carpet Forest is a magical art installation where strangely shaped branches cast dappled light onto the forest floor while the song of birds can be heard high in the canopy. Originally created as a one-off for The Kidderminster Arts Festival, it has since toured and comes to Malvern for Christmas.

Mal Salisbury, Economic Development Officer at MHDC said "This is a great weekend to come and finish off that last minute Christmas shopping and the festive season also sees The Carpet Forest providing a very intriguing artistic installation to enjoy and explore."

Entry is free and there will be seasonal entertainment during its stay, you are also welcome to come and explore the space at your own pace.

A magical environment to discover free of charge; open between the 20 and 23 December 11am - 4pm and then again from the 27 – 30 December - 12 - 4pm
