THE HISTORIC Sir Edward Elgar route which invites visitors to Worcestershire to drive, cycle and walk the footsteps of the legendary composer is being relaunched on Thursday, just in time for his birthday on June 2 and the 2019 Elgar festival, writes Shivani Chaudhari.
The route consists of a signposted excursion through the countryside and the historic city of Worcester.
Participants can either drive the 37-mile circular route which takes in a symphony of sights across Worcester and the Malvern Hills, including the Elgar statue, Elgar’s birthplace, run by the National Trust, and his grave at Malvern Wells.
The route will take about an hour-and-a-half to complete by car or three-and-a-half hours by bike, depending on ability.
There are additional walks to enjoy along the way.
Born in Lower Broadheath, Elgar learnt to play the violin at a young age and built up the reputation as a great composer whose music is loved by people all over the world.
The Morgan rally will be leaving Great Malvern at approximately 1pm on May 30, other Morgan motor car owners are welcome to join in along the route, along with Coun Dean Clarke, Chairman of Malvern Hills District Council,
