We are sad to announce the death of Johnny Gold (Br. 1945-50).

Founder of legendary London nightclub, Tramp, Johnny was remembered by photographer Richard Young as "always a kind and charming man".

Johnny came back to speak at the Old Brightonians dinner, and former Old Brightonian President, David Gold (Sc. 1986-91) said of his speech:

"He spoke beautifully: a speech full of wit and gentle gossip, nothing salacious (unfortunately!). But he did say he was enormously proud and rather emotional to be invited back and felt that, in some small way, he’d been “accepted”. 

I’m so pleased that we were able to welcome him back and to say “good on you”. 

Our thoughts are with his family.

An obituary can also be found on the Tatler website.
