The Old Brightonian Community
Tuesday night saw a reunion of the Bremer family in Kingsbridge Devon for the joint exhibition of work by Nick Bremer (Director of Art, Brighton College, 1969-00) and his son, acclaimed Berlin Artist Patrick Bremer (BCJS. 1992-96).
James Chisholm (Du.2011-13), Ross Chisholm (Du.2007-09), Marcus Smith (Le.2001-17) and Calum Waters (Le.1999-14) played for Harlequins first team in an excellent win over Worchester Warriors.
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.
In September, we invited Patrick Hicks (BCJS/Le. 1967-74) and Jeremy Charles (BCJS/Sc. 1964-74) back to Brighton College to be interviewed by current pupils, Dan Kimber (Ry. Upper Sixth) and Ella Ticktin-Smith (Ch. Upper Sixth). Their reminiscences will soon be made available in a short podcast on the Old Brightonian website. Here, Patrick reflects on his experience of returning to Brighton College after 50 years.
Jeff Allan (Ha. 1968-73) recently visited Brighton College after gaining a Guinness World Record with his son, Ben, for the shortest charging time to cross Europe (Nordkapp, Norway to Tarifa, Spain) in an electric vehicle.
