The Old Brightonian Community
Darren Curtis (Sc. 1990-95), our OB Australia Ambassador, spent six years specialising in prestige markets in central London after which he set off to Australia in 2006. He now sells real estate for Christie's International, focusing on some of the country's finest and most significant homes. Along with the Head Master, he will be hosting our biennial OB Australia Dinner on Tuesday 18th December 2018.
"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.
Last year, Kate (Se. 2011-14) and Emma (Se. 2012-16) Appleby returned to the College to talk to then U6th in chapel about the importance of well-being.
L.A. based artist and Old Brightonian Philip Vaughan (BCJS/Ch. 1954-62) works in sculpture, drawing, painting as well as public art commissions. Brought up in France, he arrived in England at the age of 9. It was at Brighton that he met modernist Gordon Taylor, who was his art teacher, and then mentor who started him on a lifelong love of architecture, painting, and sculpture.

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.
