For travel information please visit the Visitor Guide

We are expecting busy traffic condition on Friday 10 May for RHS Malvern Spring Festival. Please plan your journey in advance as the B4424 Upton Road at the junction with A449 Powick is currently closed due to a water main burst.

Entry to the Festival

In common with other large events, we are introducing open bag checks as visitors enter the showground to enhance our security and therefore the safety of our visitors.  As you enter the festival please have your bags open ready for our team to inspect. This is on the advice of local authorities so please be patient with the security team as they carry out these checks as they will be working as efficiently as possible to ensure your entry to the festival is not unduly disrupted. 

This security check is not to prevent visitors from bringing their own food and drink into the festival, it is purely for visitor safety.

Festival Guide

Guides are available at £5 each as you enter the festival.  They contain exhibitor information, a map, theatre timetables and much more
