In this virtual tour, you’ll learn about the history of Malvern’s trees, the stories behind their planting, and the unique characteristics of each species. Malvern’s Marvellous Trees is an educational and entertaining talk, illustrated with top-class photos, that will leave you with a greater appreciation of all trees. Book now to discover the fascinating story of how Malvern developed its unique treescape and experience the beauty and majesty of these trees yourself.
Walking on the Malvern Hills (Monday 27th March)
The Malvern Hills rise dramatically from the flatlands surrounding the River Severn. The hills are rich with history, diverse in habitat and overflowing with natural springs, known locally as 'wells'. On a clear day, the views from the hills are unsurpassed, and when the weather is wild, you can watch the drama unfold over the surrounding areas. Join us on this virtual walking tour and learn about the area's ancient and modern history, the habitats and wildlife of the hills, and the town's influence on our musical and literary culture.

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
Exploring Malvern's Nature has supplementary learning materials provided by the event host. Once you book an event, you will get access to these resources.
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
