We are delighted to announce that planning permission was granted last week for the Diamond Jubilee Pavilion to be built on the New Ground in East Brighton Park. The one-storey building will have large changing rooms, a stunning café-bar overlooking the New Ground and an impressive entrance foyer, providing a warm and welcoming environment for pupils, staff and spectators. Other groups are also set to benefit as the new facilities will also be made available to other sporting groups from around the community.

There were very few changes made to the originally-submitted plans. One improvement to the design will see a change to the finish on the roof; instead of an aluminium roof, the Pavilion will have bio-diverse sedum roof. This will be a beautiful feature, perfectly complementing its setting at the foot of the South Downs. Building will begin as soon as the necessary funds have been secured. We have already raised £520,000 of the £700,000 needed to fund the project through the generosity of members of the Brighton College community.

If you have been thinking about making a gift to support the Pavilion, please do so now so we can begin building as soon as possible.  For a donation of £1,000 (which can be paid in small monthly instalments), you will become a Friend of the Pavilion and be permanently recognised on a donor board in the new building. More details of the project can be found on our website together with a facility to donate online.
