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.
