AN ICONIC aircraft from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will fly over a popular Malvern music festival today.

The flight is passing over Mappfest today at 2.40pm, on Malvern Link Common.

The aircraft also passed over the festival yesterday at 1pm (June 18). 

The popular festival features two days of live music and is back stronger than ever, having been abandoned in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic.

Mappfest started as a garden party hosted by Andy Mapp in 2009 with a raffle for charity with a couple of live performers and has grown into an annual event held on Malvern Common.

It raises thousands for Worcestershire charities including Acorns Children's Hospice, Headway, Water Rescue UK and Vale Animal Rescue.
