Welcome to the Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust website.

The Reverend’s Rebuke

Saturday 24 July 2:30pm and 5:00pm
Sunday 12 September 2:30pm and 5:00pm

Bramcote Old Church Tower, Town St, Bramcote, Nottingham NG9 3DP

Everything was going well for the Reverend Thomas Wilkinson, hardworking curate of Attenborough-with-Bramcote, until a letter landed on his doorstep on May 26th 1835.

Where do you go for redress when your good name has been trampled through the mud and you think you know the real reason why you have been so ill-served? Mr Wilkinson believed he knew it.

But would any of his persecutors admit the truth?

Tickets £5 available online:

Duration, 1 hour. The play is written for a socially distanced cast and a small cabaret-style audience, with Covid-19 safety in mind.

The performances will take place whatever the weather. Refreshments are available from 2pm and 4.30pm. Recommended parking for all performances except Sunday 12 September at 5pm is in the car park of St Michael & All Angels, Church Street, NG9 3HD, by kind permission of the Vicar and PCC. The Tower is a short walk away, past the White Lion pub.

Regrettably, there is no wheelchair access to the site.


With the easing of Covid restrictions the Trustees have decided to start cautious planning of events for 2021.  Fully details will be available on this website and our Facebook Page.

The Tower grounds have been open through the pandemic and will continue to remain open so do feel free to visit at any time,  still bearing in mind social distancing.

Please keep reviewing this website and our Facebook Page for any further information. Thanking you for your continued support.

Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust

The Tower Project started in 2004, when 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.
