It has been another fantastic term for Brighton College Chamber Music! after three gruelling national rounds, four of our ensembles were selected to play in the winners' final concert of the Pro Corda National Chamber Music Competition in Cambridge.
In recent years the College has run a series of particularly successful careers events for the Sixth form, where we have been extremely lucky to have a range of Old Brightonians return to their old school to speak to pupils about their careers, what they do and how they got to where they are now.
"The world needs more people like him” – seven words that perfectly encapsulate the reason why Peter Bellenger is this winner of this award for special services.
The OB London Drinks is a fun and relaxed event which takes place every year in February. This year we visited Karma Sanctum Hotel in Soho, bringing together Old Brightonians of all ages, houses and professions.
Do you remember being on the stage of the Great Hall, perhaps reciting some Shakespeare or maybe even Euripides? Or were you behind the scenes helping with costumes, props or even stage design? Drama, music, art and dance are flourishing at the College, but we very well know that the Great Hall stage has seen many an impressive show since it was built in 1913.
We are delighted to announce that both Brighton College and Brighton College Prep and Pre-Prep appear on two spaces on the new board in the Brighton and Hove edition of Monopoly, which was released last month. Traditionally taken up by Regent Street and Bond Street we sit on two green spaces!
At this year’s remembrance service, the Head Master will read the names of Old Brightonians who lost their lives during the Second World War. Some of these men, like John Sulman, lived to marry and have children, while others were children themselves, like Frank Stuttaford. Although their lives were very different, each would have walked through the archway in the College’s gatehouse. They would have posed for their house photograph in September, and sat in the chapel each morning, alongside their friends.
