The Tower Project : Started in 2004, the Friends of Bramcote Old Church Tower began the task of restoration of the 13th century, grade II listed church tower and the respectful regeneration of the closed and deconsecrated graveyard. In 2010 Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust was formed and in 2015 an application for Heritage Lottery Funding was made. In 2017 it was granted and the work is on going. The site is of historical importance locally and no longer associated with the church, but a public space for the community at the centre of the village of Bramcote.
Bramcote Old Church Tower now has a Facebook page. Get the very latest and up to date information by clicking on the Facebook icon. While there, click ‘Like’ to follow us.
Saturday 10 August - Art Day at the Tower With the intermittent showers and the gusts of high wind one would have thought it was not the ideal conditions to do some painting! You would be right but that did not deter a hardy group of artists from coming to the Tower last Saturday and producing some lovely art work. Here are a few photos from that day. Thank you to all that ventured out into quite challenging conditions and helping make the event a success! Also thank you to Peter Hillier for his artistic input in running this workshop.

It’s a beautiful sight and a festive event for all the family. We’d like to have some good home-grown entertainment throughout the evening to cheer everyone along while they drink their hot chocolate and their mulled wine. So if you have a choir or a band, or you ring handbells or you do a spot of busking, do come and perform some lively music for us.
We have slots of 10-15 minutes throughout the evening, and you and your instruments will be under the protective cover of our twinkly performance gazebo.
