As with all accounts of such gatherings, I must open my report with a pathetically grateful nod to whoever arranged for the promised rain to hold off (which meant that Joey Appleton’s (D.1979-84) hair stayed fabulous all day!).

I am rarely asked by the manager to leave a public bar before closing time but I am pleased to report that on this occasion I did not disgrace myself! When I reserved a space at one of London’s newest trendy bars I saw no problem with the condition that we should make way for another party at 9:30pm. These informal gatherings usually attract just a few London OBs in search of someone to share a pint with after work and all have usually gone home by 8pm.

Saturday 13 September saw the introduction of the first Old Brightonians’ Day designed to replace the loss of OB events on Commemoration/Speech Day at the College.

29 November 2003

More than 80 ‘old girls’ celebrated 30 years of co-education at Brighton College at a special dinner on Saturday 29th November 2003. Speakers included Bill Blackshaw, the former Headmaster who introduced girls to the College and Lucinda Harris (F. 1973-75) who was one of the first girls to join the school. Jane Haviland (F. 1979-81), currently President of the Old Brightonians Association and the first lady elected to this post, also spoke.

01 June 2002

The College remembrance service is unique amongst the services held on a Sunday during the year, as there is no communion or sermon, and is jointly held for the senior and prep schools in the College. Instead, a few prayers are interspersed with much poetry, music and personal accounts of visitors to the Somme.
