Who is the greatest Malmesburian of all?

Save the day for the big debate! Friday 5th February 2021. Who is the greatest Malmesburian of them all? St Aldhelm or Thomas Hobbes?

Proponents Mayor of Malmesbury Campbell Ritchie and eminent historian Tony McAleavy will trade their case over four crisp rounds of information and persuasion. Followed by the vote. You decide! 80 minutes (and a short break) of toe to toe action, masterfully compered by Susan Mockler.

Tickets are just £5 for each screen. Available at the TIC in the Town Hall or at Eventbrite (booking fee applies): https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/who-is-the-greatest-malmesburian-of-all-tickets-131447126895

A wonderful place to visit with a wealth of attractions right on the doorstep.


Malmesbury is a beautiful town to visit in its own right and attractions include the jewel in our crown being Malmesbury Abbey, the fabulous Abbey House Gardens, and Malmesbury’s 15th century Market Cross.

For more than two and a half millennia successive generations have populated this hilltop, which forms the centre of the community we now call Malmesbury.
