Deadline for applications: March 20th 2020.

Braunstone Civic Centre and Thorpe Astley Community Centre

Want to run an event?

This year, we will see the 75th anniversary of VE day (Victory in Europe) day. To celebrate the surrender of the Axis forces on May 8th 1945, Braunstone Town Council has agreed to support local community groups in hosting events for the public.

The Town Council will provide a room free of charge, help with promotion and publicity, and help to sell tickets if required. Community groups can also apply for a grant of £200 to help with the running of events, which can be applied for through our grants scheme.

All events should have a VE Day related theme – whether it is singing, a big band performance, a demonstration of historical artefacts, a themed lunch, a tea party etc. – anything you feel would be appropriate.
