Priory Lunch Box


Lunch Box provides an opportunity for people to bring a sandwich lunch into the inspiring surroundings of Great Malvern Priory while they hear a short concert, recital or an interesting talk.

Lunch Box is an annual programme of lunchtime events held in the Priory.


Lunch Box takes place from September to April on alternate Thursday lunchtimes from 12.30 pm until 1.30 pm.

The music or talk starts at 1 pm and lasts approximately 30 minutes.

There is no charge, but you can buy tea and coffee and cake.


The concerts are usually put on by local musicians or schools and are of a very high quality.


The talks are often by local speakers on a wide variety of subjects including local history, places of interest, a day in the life of...., national charities or poetry readings.We are always looking for new topics of interest, so if you would like to take part please contact Anne Eglington through the Parish Office 01684 561020
