  • It was only rock 'n' Roll - But We Like It! - Tue, 02 July Tue, 30 July 2019

    2 - 30 July, Atrium

    A celebration of popular music at Malvern Winter Gardens, 1961 - 1990. They say that if you remember the sixties, then you weren't really there... Malvern Winter Gardens (now Malvern Theatres) was once a major regional venue for concerts by popular rock bands such as The Who, Pink Floyd, The Jam, Black Sabbath, Joy Division and many more.

    When the venue's focus returned to classical music and drama, the rock music concerts were largely forgotten. This exhibition celebrates Malvern's rocking past, with posters, tickets, photos, a listening booth and a 1970s jukebox on which you can hear oral history interviews with people who were there, and remember it!
