The first exhibition to be funded by Route to the Hills has come down this week. MRATHS's hugely popular exhibition 'Scientists come to Malvern' ran from May to September, and has attracted the interest of many curious minds who have seen it along Church Walk this summer. A very popular exhibition many people have expressed delight at uncovering some of Malvern's hidden stories, with hopes that the exhibition can be continued in the future.

One person in particular who was delighted by the exhibition was Heather Ainge (now Heather Judson), a local resident who was surprised to find herself part of one of the displays. Heather spotted herself back in May on a poster for the 1953 Coronation production ' A Country Girl' by the TRE players and contacted MRATHS to share this story with them. 

Research establishments have a long history of being involved in amateur dramatics, and they helped lay the foundations  for the formation of The Malvern Theatre Players. 

A copy of the poster, as well as some other memorabilia of the musical were presented to Mrs Judson recently, creating a memento for the time she was involved in the artistic side of life at TRE.
