Ever since 1885 Malvern has had a concert hall and theatre on the current Malvern Theatres site. It has always staged an eclectic series of events. In 1997 it underwent extensive refurbishment, and it is now a model of artistic and architectural excellence.

The new complex has an 850-seat Festival Theatre, a Forum Theatre, a 400-seat cinema, and a bar and restaurant.

Malvern Theatres boasts one of the most diverse selection of plays, music, comedy, dance, film and education work to be found under a single roof anywhere in the country.

The Water Clock
On permanent display in the Circle Bar is an 8 foot water clock. It is entitled ‘Water Clock Celebrating Malvern’s Industry’. It was invented and created by world-famous French sculptor, designer and horologist Bernard Gitton.
 
Malvern’s water clock was the first of its kind in Britain. The clock measures time by the movement of water through its complex system of glass tubes. The clock has proved an attraction for visitors to Malvern ever since its unveiling in 2003.
