Campaign Story

We’re looking to raise £50,000 to help us secure the next phase for FAUN, creating a new foodie destination here in our Great Malvern.

In exchange for your investment, we’re offering some tantalising rewards for you to look forward to post-lockdown. You can view the full offering and select your reward on the right of this page.

Alternatively, if you would simply like to make a donation, please use the ‘Back Campaign’ option in the top section.


After working a serious bit of Faun magic to transform the former Brays into our spacious new home, it may look like we’re almost done. However, this was just the beginning. It’s now time to focus on the even bigger reasons for the move - the basement space and the outside area.

Phase one: £6,000. Develop the bakehouse and deli kitchen. This will mean we can offer our own house-made bread, pastries and tarts, as well as a range of deli produce from terrines, pickles and jams, to salads, soups and toasties.

Phase two: £4,000. Set up the tap room, offering a select range of local craft ales and ciders, alongside a bar for local wine & spirits. With plans to host tastings and events in our beautiful back cellar room.

Phase three: £18,000. Create the covered, outside seating area, which can be used all year round. Featuring a wood-fired oven for pizza, bread and so much more.

Phase four: £22,000. Launch the FAUN Kitchen. Focusing on simple, local and seasonal ingredients, with a regularly changing menu from breakfast through to lunch. In the evening, we plan to host FAUN Feasts, curated by our Head Chef.

We are taking it one step at a time, but we need your help to bring this vision to life. We have created some tantalising rewards in return for any pledge that you can make.

This is a BIG step for us - We started out on the corner of Church Walk and Church Street back in December 2019, where we transformed the former estate agents into a little foodie haven, with trestle tables, hessian and apple crates filled with fabulous local produce.

Our little spot on the corner did us proud, but over time the limitations of the space became more and more apparent, restricting our offering and preventing us from developing in all the ways we’d like.

Over the past year, we have been truly overwhelmed by the support we have received from you, our local community. Firstly, when we closed our doors and developed our online offering for a home delivery service. And again, after we completed the first phase of this big move. We are so humbled by the wondrous welcome and feedback you have given.

We feel so very grateful to still be here after such a challenging first year. And we’re clearly not out of the woods yet. To take this project on in this most strangest of times has taken a giant leap of faith, but we already feel at home in our new space and are so excited for what’s still to come.

The chance to make our own produce on site will make us much more viable and mean we can offer an exciting range of new produce and develop a tailored menu foraged from the local surrounds.

Many thanks,

Shona & Jon
And all the FAUN Family

    We just love Faun. Thank you. Bandoola Productions fully supports. The benefit I would like is for someone to draw an elephant on my coffee in lieu of the leaf. Someone did a bear once. Magical. ( I used to buy my school cap from where you keep the pastries!)#lovefaun.

      Ah that's great to hear, thank you. Haha, sure we can give it a try.
      We've found some real Brays treasures in some of the old cabinets!
