Unveiling of the Plaque for the Mulberry tree replacing George

Bernard Shaw’s tree planted in 1936

In 1936, George Bernard Shaw planted a mulberry tree in Priory

Park, which blew down in a storm in 2000. A cutting of the tree had

been sent to Malvern, Victoria, Australia and from it six saplings

were grown and sent to Great Malvern. The unveiling of the plaque

celebrates the return of a mulberry tree to Priory Park and will be

performed by Di Foster, from Malvern, Victoria, as part of Malvern

Civic Week Opening Ceremony. Everyone attending will receive a

ticket for mulberry pie and tea or coffee at the Mount Pleasant

Hotel, and to see a film on original events in the Mulberry Tree history.

The ticket also enables free entry that afternoon to Malvern

Museum to see the special Two Malverns display.
