The first of our new Church Building Repairs fundraising events is happening in the church on Saturday 26th March at 7pm, with a concert production of The Story of Gilbert & Sullivan.
Book your tickets now for a sparkling concert by the brilliant Stamford Gilbert & Sullivan Players, telling the amusing story of Gilbert & Sullivan's classic comic operas, with highlights and props from HMS Pinafore via the Mikado to the Gondoliers and many more. Some of Gilbert & Sullivan's commentary on the ruling classes remain as pertinent as ever!
The concert starts at 7pm with an interval for wine, non alcoholic drinks and nibbles and will finish by 10pm. Tickets are £20 each for adults, under 16's £10 including interval drinks & nibbles. All proceeds in support of Braunston Church Building repairs and Stamford G&S Players.
Not only does this promise to be a great evening's entertainment, it will also show your support to preserve our ancient church building.
Tickets are limited to 80 to preserve social distancing, mask wearing is currently required when not seated but we will review and hopefully relax this closer to the date.
Tickets from Carole Brown tel 01572 868420 or Rob Anderson tel 01572 774388. They're going fast, so get yours soon.

After being cancelled for the past two years, the May Fayre is set to return on Monday May 2nd. Planning meetings have started and we will be updating our May Fayre page as we get further news. Watch this space ! More »
We will be looking for volunteers to help make it all run smoothly, so whether you fancy a stint in the car park, serving refreshments in the village hall, or helping to run games in the garden, there will be plenty of opportunities. Old hands will know the ropes, but if you're new to the village it's a great way to get involved in village life and meet people. » Less

New Braunston Advent Fayre launched - virtual and physical - Take Part!
Last year covid forced us to hold a very successful "virtual" Advent Fayre. We missed kicking off the Christmas season in person, but were able to supply lots of Christmas goods to everyone, and raised a good sum for maintaining our ancient church building. More »
This year the Advent Fayre invites you, our local crafts people, artists and artisans to exhibit and sell your products as part of the Advent Fayre, in the village hall, on Saturday 27th November. We expect to have an exciting range of crafts, arts, jewellery, gifts and produce to buy and look at, along with the usual fabulous Christmas goodies the Advent Fayre is famous for.
We will also hold the draw for the festive Advent Fayre Raffle on the day in the hall. Stalls will be free for exhibitors but we ask stall holders for a modest donation based on any sales made. We will publicise stall holders in advance along with links to their websites and product lists. Christmas puddings, Christmas cakes, yule logs, jams, marmalades, chutneys will be available to buy on the day and to order in advance for delivery to your home or to collect at the Fayre.
