AN exhibition about live rock music in Malvern from the Sixties onwards is coming to Worcester.

The exhibition has been on show at Malvern Library since may, but on Tuesday, July 2, it opens at the Hive.

Since January 2018, Malvern-based charity Rock Around the Hills has been working with volunteers to create an oral history project, an online community archive and an exhibition, celebrating the story of rock, punk and progressive rock at the Winter Gardens from 1961 to 1990. The project has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Postcode Community Trust and the Bransford Trust.

The exhibition features a touchscreen displaying images of posters, tickets, flyers and fanzines – over 500 items in total.

There is also a specially converted 1970s jukebox playing the recorded memories of audience members, musicians and promoters who were all part of the Malvern Winter Gardens story.

The exhibition has already attracted a few musical celebrities, including Captain Sensible of The Damned, and Paul Quinn of Saxon, both of whom played at the Winter Gardens in its heyday.

From the early 1960s, for a period of around 30 years, Malvern Winter Gardens rocked to the sounds of bands such The Jam, The Kinks, The Who, Pink Floyd, Motorhead and more.
