The Malvern Autumn Show at the Three Counties Showground in Worcestershire is a fabulous harvest festival event. Taking place at the foot of the beautiful Malvern Hills, the show is a wonderful celebration of food, gardening, and nostalgia. It truly showcases the magnificent season of Autumn in all its glory.
Running over three days, the show is family-friendly with a timetable of events so you can plan your visit accordingly.

It’s also where you’ll find the Gardening Village, which is home to the RHS Flower Show in the floral marquee. The Nurseries and Bulb Market and floral art. The Giant Vegetable Championship is always popular. Here you can marvel at the mammoth marrows, colossal cucumbers, larger-than-life leek, and super-sized squash. The Vintage Village is a lovely throwback to a bygone era. See classic cars, caravans, tractors, and bikes from the 1940s, take part in a dance lesson in the dance tent and learn classic moves from the 40s and 50s. There’s also a wartime pub and vintage tearoom.
