It was wonderful to see so many Old Brightonians back at the College for our 30-year reunion dinner on Saturday 5th October.
Our Hong Kong OBs have struck once again with a successful drinks meet up at the trendy Bread and Beast in Wanchai last Friday night.
With some many OBs attending Universities in the West of England, we decided that it would be only be fitting to host a dinner in Bristol following on from our OB London, Cambridge and Oxford dinners.
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.
The Jesuit motto was ‘Give me a boy until he is seven and I will give you the man.’ Well, until 1977 Brighton College had this group until they were 17 and after 40 years it was clear that by 17 the die was cast and little had we changed. Sure, much of the mens' hair had moved from the scalp to the chin but, that apart, little had seemed to change especially amongst the girls for whom the years had been kinder.
There was a fantastic turnout for the annual OB Brighton Drinks at The Mesmerist in the South Lanes of Brighton on Thursday 20th April 2017. Entering the Speakeasy room upstairs through a secret door, the room was full of OBs of all ages (attendee list below).
The Pioneers Club was once again warmly welcomed by the Savile Club for this year’s London Luncheon, hosted by Gavin Henderson, CBE (Le. 1960-65).

Twenty years is quite a long time, especially when the current Y13's at our alma mater were two years of age when we left in 1991. Time is a very odd concept and what it does to you, either through the graceful ageing process or the fact that going back to Brighton last Saturday made us all feel as if it was just yesterday we left... and what a day we had!
