About Worcestershire

Worcestershire, home of Edward Elgar, and still a centre for music with the Chandos Symphony Orchestra and the English Symphony Orcestra. Like many English counties Worcestershire boasts an interesting diversity of countryside and provides opportunities for enjoyable walking in many places.

There are the glorious Malvern Hills, home of Midsummer Music, providing an impressive south western border to the county with their distinctive nine mile ridge profile. In the north west is the Wyre Forest, the largest area of continuous woodland in the county and, due to its age and diversity, an interesting location for walking. The Severn, one of England's great rivers, enters the county near Bewdley, in the north west, and flows southwards to leave near Tewkesbury in the south west.

The Severn Valley is steep and wooded in the north, widening out to a broad flood plain of pasture land in the south, offering some lovely riverside walks along the Severn Way.

The north west corner of the county, west of the River Severn, is a peaceful area of undulating farmland, intimate valleys and small villages ideal for relaxing walking. The River Teme, from Tenbury Wells to its junction with the Severn south of Worcester, also has a quiet rural valley ideal for leisurely walks. In the south east Bredon Hill provides bracing walks, with fine views across the Severn Valley to the Malvern Hills and delightful villages to explore. Even further east at Broadway the county offers a taste of the Cotswolds and a walk up the dramatic escarpment to Broadway Tower. Worcestershire's area has a very odd shape, but it is approximimately 44 miles wide and 24 miles deep.

It has four major rivers running through it, those being the Severn, Avon, Tame and Stour. Produce included grain and fruit. Worcester manufactured gloves, porcelain and cabinet ware, and in other towns were tanneries, glass and iron works. Wool-spinning, linen-weaving and the manufacture of needles and nails also took place throughout Worcestershire. Kidderminster was well known for its carpet manufacturing.

Musically, Worcestershire is famous for the composer, Elgar. Edward Elgar was born in the small village of Lower Broadheath outside Worcester. The Malvern Hills are now a focus for musical talent, being the residence for some years of the violinist Nigel Kennedy and the focal point for many of our String Quartets, Ceilidh Bands and other music groups.

Worcestershire is famous for its cricket. A Function Band or Cover Band is a great way to let off steam at an after match party. An alternative to a Party Band that has worked well is an Irish Ceilidh Band, ensuring everyone gets involved.

The Midsummer Quartet is one of the string quartets in worcestershire on our web site. There are a number of talented jazz bands in worcestershire who play regularly around the county.The Ringerike Ceilidh Band is one of the ceilidh bands in worcestershire / barn dance bands in worcestershire wedding quartets in worcestershire.
