Malvern Editorial 9th Mar, 2018 Updated: 9th Mar, 2018

CREATIVE residents are being urged to showcase the history of Malvern in a competition from Route to the Hills, writes Daniel Cooke.

The lottery funded project has launched the new competition in preparation for an exhibition designed to tell a story about the town’s rich historic and cultural heritage, due to be exhibited in the summer.

Designs can range from displaying old photographs, objects, writing poems or creating artworks or storyboards.

Notable events, characters of Malvern or the history of a building are just some of the examples of what ideas could be based on.

Katy Wade, learning and community engagement officer for Route to the Hills said: “We hope to extend the history that has been explored in Route to the Hills and give people the chance to engage with local heritage as part of a fun project which will benefit the local community.

“We are excited to see the variety of ideas submitted and look forward to working with the winner to develop their exhibition.”

All individuals or groups are welcome to apply including schools, poetry groups and artistic networks.

The winning entry will receive up to £1,000 to help cover costs of producing the exhibition and will work alongside Route to the Hills to help launch it.

The deadline for applications is March 13.
