    Saw Toyah and Robert Fripp, plus their great band at the Regal and what a fabulous evening it was. I've always admired Toyah, just ordinary and lovely, then turns into this fantastic energetic and talented performer. With the addition of Robert, an amazingly talented Guitarist and lovely bloke , its all is just fab. They were amazing and so was the band. A big shout out goes to, to the friendly, helpful, professional front of house team at the Regal. A big good mention also to the two chaps on the bar who did an incredible job with huge ques and a stressful time serving everyone. I do front of House and refreshments at another theatre and it can be a hard job keeping everything going. All in all a great evening out. I hope Toyah and Robert play there again. Its not far from Pershore so here's hoping!!!

    On visiting the Cotswold Vale Alpacas with my 2 friends we were met by Ginnie a lovely lady who told us all about the alpacas and was very informative. I enjoyed feeding, walking the alpacas and seeing how they were very well looked after. It was a wonderful experience and would recommend going to visit the farm to see these beautiful animals, I had a great time.

    Fascinating place. I'm not really a "museumy" kinda person but we really enjoyed this visit. Lots of quirky, amusing and educational exhibits spanning prehistoric times to WW2 and housed in beautiful building. The lady on reception was very helpful and informative and the entry price is reasonable.

    We often visit this interesting complex and like most people we used to eat at the garden centre restaurant, however there are alternatives, we have discovered the crafty cuppa cafe which is smaller but offers far cheaper and better quality meals.
    There is a decent selection of outlets offering discounts so it is a good place to browse. The garden centre is well worth checking out despite the disappointing restaurant.

    Lively and lovely little park. Seemed well maintained and much enjoyed by the noise levels of little children playing. Evesham is a historic old town and I was a little surprised at the number of immigrant people there judging by the range and variety of languages. But then again this is Britain 2024. I shouldnt be surprised.

    Just beautiful. To walk beside, sail or paddle on. Tons of wildlife and wild flowers, good paths leading to riverside pubs. Full-on winter floods!

    The Evesham Arts Centre is a great venue. There’s not a bad seat in the house. It’s small enough to be intimate but big enough to be classy and professional. The staff are great, as are facilities. If they could just stop handing out single use plastic cups to people who have a tiny bit of drink left as they enter the auditorium they’d be perfect. “A moment on the lips and a millennium in the tips” folks!

    In many ways there isn’t a lot to see here.... Only the bell tower survives of what was once one of the largest abbeys in England. Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII in 1540, most of the Abbey buildings were sold and demolished for reuse as building stone. Only the Bell Tower and almonry survived along with stretches of the monastic wall and the two churches.

    The bell tower is a good example of Perpendicular architecture towering above the surrounding area. The archway under the tower lead from the town cemetery into the Monk’s cemetery.

    Being near the Almonry (excellent museum and well worth visiting) this is only a short walk from the centre of Evesham. It is surrounded by lovely landscaped gardens with trees, flower beds and lakes which run down to the river. The two medieval churches next to the bell tower were built for the townsfolk as the Abbey Church was just used by the monks.

    Don’t miss the C15th timber frame Abbot Reginald’s gateway near All Saints Church and Church House (originally the vicarage). The gateway allowed pedestrian access to the abbey from the Market Place. .

    Although it can’t rank as an absolutely ‘must see’, it is still worth going to have a look and the gardens are a good place to drop out on a sunny day.

    There has been a ferry across teh river here for hundreds of years. The Monks from Evesham Abbey planted a vineyard on the terraced slopes of Clarkes Hill in Hampton. As the only bridge across the river was two miles from the vineyard, they installed a rope ferry to make the journey easier as well as a building where they could make and store the wine.

    The ferry proved popular with the villagers of Hampton and surrounding villages allowing them to reach Evesham. The ferry continued to run after the Dissolution of the Abbey, as people still preferred to cross the river via ferry. The winery was converted into a private house, rebuilt many times over the centuries.

    The ferry still works today and is one of the few surviving examples of a chain ferry. It is manually operated by pulling on a cable that is suspended across the river. When the ferry is docked at either bank the cable is allowed to sink to the river bottom, so as not to interfere with other river traffic. Now it is mainly used by walkers and mobile home owners on the Hampton side.

    It is great fun!

    Set in the Abbey Gardens, near the Abbey Bell tower, this is a lovely old church. Along with its now redundant neighbour, St Lawrence, this was built to serve the parishioners of Evesham.

    Perhaps the most impressive part of the church is the small chapel to Our Lady and St Egwin set behind a screen on the south wall. It has a wonderful stone vaulted ceiling as well as carved friezes along the walls. Don’t miss the window with Prince Edward (later Edward I) standing above Simon De Montford who he defeated at the Battle of Evesham.

    The stained glass elsewhere in the church is impressive. There are images of well known figures from the Bible including the evangelists, patriarchs and Kings of the Old Testament. The Celtic saints aren’t forgotten either.

    And finally don’t miss the carving of the ’Horned Moses’ in the inner porch. ‘Horned Moses”. The name comes from a mistranslation of the Hebrew text where the word ‘rays’ (of light from the head of Moses) was incorrectly interpreted as ’horns’...

    The church is well worth a visit.

    This old church had staff on hand to welcome you and once down the steps opens up to a beautiful interior that is resplendent with colourful windows and interesting war memorials. It is airy and spacious and was a delight to visit. It is set amongst other interesting buildings and a lovely park.
