Museums Worcestershire (a partnership between Worcester City and Worcestershire County Council) is inviting proposals at this stage, for a catering concession at the Commandery Café, based in the Commandery, Sidbury, Worcester to run from February to December each year, with an option to open in January.

The Commandery is a beautiful Grade 1 listed building, a few minutes’ walk from Worcester Cathedral and the City Centre, attracting around 18,000 visitors a year.  It has a rich and varied history, most well-known for its role in the Battle of Worcester when it was the Royalist Headquarters. Today the museum includes an interactive exhibition telling Worcester’s Civil War Story.

Embedded in Worcester’s unique heritage and a key part of its tourist offer The Commandery welcomes local, regional and national audiences and the Café is an essential part of the visitor experience.  We are looking for a Caterer who shares our aim to create a quality experience for all our visitors and encourages them to make repeat visits.

The Commandery is situated next to Fort Royal Park and the busy Birmingham to Worcester canal, attracting walkers, cyclists, boaters and those taking the scenic route into the city.
