“I’ve been having conversations with friends and colleagues locally for many years about putting on something like this in Malvern.


“I’m so pleased it’s finally happening! Huge thanks to Malvern Hills District Council and Severn Arts for supporting this opportunity.

“We have an incredible range of acts and workshops Lined Up! From spoken word jazz poetry to a mechanical techno organ. This is a festival for adventurous, curious music lovers.

“We can’t wait to see everyone at Malvern Cube!’

Sam Underwood, frontman of ORE, who will perform at the festival, said: ‘It’s great to have an event like Line Up starting locally. ORE are delighted to have been asked to perform.
