A FREE family festival came to Worcestershire last week, with more than 300 guests attending the fun-filled day.

Malvern Cube hosted the Cube Shuffle on Sunday (September 5), showcasing a range of live music, fresh food stalls and activities for all ages.

Entry and activities were all free of charge, with only food and drinks to pay for.

Children took part in Taekwondo classes, dance groups and arts and craft workshops, whilst parents enjoyed yoga massages and a fully stocked bar.

Nicola Turrell, centre manager, manager said the event was an "incredible day".

She said: "I could not be prouder of every single person who made the event the incredible day that it was and all of the community who came out to support us and have a great time .

"After months and months of closure, this years event felt more poignant, powerful and incredible than ever.

"We kept very careful Covid mitigation in place and everyone was courteous and respectful.

"I spent the day moving round the Cube checking all was ok, I must have walked miles, but many many times I was just stopped in my tracks and thought - wow, this is what it’s all about."

All staff, vendors and stalls volunteered their time free of charge so families could enjoy the free event.

The annual event has been hosted by the charity since 2013 in a bid to celebrate the community.

Mrs Turrell said: "Malvern Cube is run by the community, for the community and I definitely think we showed that."

The centre said their mission is to be an inclusive environment for the community and young people of Malvern, after it was almost closed down in 2010 due to funding cutbacks.
