A memorial to celebrate the life and times of Reg Spicer, former Head Porter at Brighton College, will be held on 18th January 2015. Reg's birthday was 17th January and so the family have chosen this date to celebrate Reg's time with the College, and to scatter his ashes. Reg arrived at the College in 1977, working with Bert Swarbrook until Bert retired in 1988 when Reg became Head Porter until his retirement in 2001. He is remembered with huge affection by everyone who worked with him.
Documentary film-maker, author and all round adventurer, Chris Terrill certainly has some tales to tell from his days at Brighton College through to today, we managed to find time in his schedule to draw out some of those stories...
Brighton College has launched a new city landmark today with the unveiling of its grand gatehouse tower at its entrance – finally built after a 125-year delay. The tower, which has been named Cairns Tower after the school's headmaster, was supposed to be the crowning glory of architect Sir Thomas Graham Jackson's late 19th century additions to Brighton College (founded in 1845) but a shortage of funds meant his splendid creation was never finished. In 2012 the College engaged historic building specialists Richard Griffiths Architects to complete the original design of the tower externally. The tower has been paid for, in the most part, by one very generous, anonymous donor. Other donors followed suit and the result, which was unveiled in front of the whole school with much celebration, is set to be a breath-taking addition to the Brighton skyline.
