Great Malvern Gin Festival

The Great Malvern Gin Festival takes place from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 August. There are ten venues signed up to take part with more than 50 gins available to test out from the classic tastes to the weird and wonderful.

While you are enjoying your tipple, there will be live music and gin talks to enjoy from locally distilled Hussingtree Gin and Malvern Gin, along with special gin cocktails to sample during the weekend. For the dedicated drivers and non-gin lovers, there will be plenty of non-alcoholic drinks to try as well.

Let’s get back to supporting our traders safely

All businesses are now open and able to trade. While legal restrictions on social contact and the wearing of face coverings have been removed, Covid-19 has not gone away. Many businesses still have safety measures in place to protect you and their staff. The latest government advice is that face coverings should still be worn in crowded areas.
