December 14, 2020

Bramcote Old Church Tower Community Project


The Bramcote Old Church Tower community project is a NLHF project which began in October 2017 and will be completed by December 2021. The project has enabled urgent restoration work on the tower as well as a new build for increased facilities and through events and activities on and off site. We now wish to focus on engaging new audiences which will be achieved through creating a new, vibrant and consistent Marketing Campaign.

Therefore, Bramcote Old Church Tower Trust is seeking to appoint a Marketing Company or Individual with the skills required to ensure that the marketing strategy, plan and campaign for Bramcote Old Church Tower is developed and delivered in line with the agreed topics of the National Lottery Heritage Fund project as well as being a sustainable and manageable ‘package’ post project. We envisage this will include both traditional forms of advertising as well as building up digital platforms and campaigns.

The contract will start in February 2021 and be completed by October 2021.

The budget for this work is a maximum of £4,800 (plus VAT, if appropriate) over this period.

  • Work with the Project team, including an Evaluation Consultant to ensure we set reasonable targets for increased engagement (i.e. hits on website and then follow through to visits or online events) and create a report for the final Evaluation report (written by the Evaluation Consultant) to demonstrate the success of the new marketing strategy.
