Be Inspired

Malvern has a rich heritage of science, technology and innovation.

During World War II, the UK's Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE) was moved to Malvern College in Great Malvern and radar was invented. As electronic research continued, a TRE engineer Geoffrey Drummer first conceptualised the integrated circuit.

This R&D organisation remains in Malvern now as part of QinetiQ, and over the years its researchers have invented touch screens, liquid crystal display materials, and porous silicon.

But innovation in Malvern hasn't just been in the physical sciences: James Gully pioneered medical tourism with the water cure, Schweppes bottled Malvern's water, C.S. Lewis was inspired to write the Chronicles of Narnia, and Morgan still hand-builds iconic sports cars in the town.

Today, Malvern is a vibrant place with picturesque Victorian architecture, a nationally renowned theatre, and an ecosystem of technology-focused businesses; all against the backdrop of the Malvern Hills. It is also the home of the nationally acclaimed annual Malvern Festival of Innovation.
