OB Events

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.

For those of you that came in to collect your A-level results yesterday, we hope that you are enjoying the Graduation 2013 Photo Book that we put together for you.  If you weren't able to come in don't worry, we will be posting them out to you!  The exam office is providing us with a list of who came in, so we will post them out in the next few days. 

A warm welcome to our newest members of the Old Brightonians; our leavers of 2013. 

An exquisite evening of merriment and nostalgia was enjoyed by guests on Saturday at the 40 Year Anniversary Celebration Dinner of Co-Education at Brighton College. We were delighted to welcome back Lucinda Harris (Fe. 1974-75) and Rowena Maynard (Fe. 1973-75); two of the seven very first girls to enter the male preserve of Brighton College in September 1973.

Thank you to everyone who joined us in Kuala Lumpur, it was lovely to see you all, do stay in touch!

Congratulations to all musicians who took part in the college's Festival Concert on Wednesday 4 May in St George's Church, Kemptown.

On Friday 26th October, Georgina Millar (F. 1990-92) and I (with quite a lot of help from a long list of others) organised a reunion and fundraising dinner to mark the 10th Anniversary of the Bali bombing, in which our friend, OB Daniel Braden (R. 1987-92) was killed. It coincided with 20 years since we left Brighton College.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather for the Brighton College Golf Day Friday 30th September 2011. With a back drop of the beautiful Albourne Countryside, Old Brightonians and parents headed to the fairway for a day at Singing Hills Golf Course.

OBs enjoyed a beautiful morning at Gravetye Manor Gardens on Friday 16th September with inspiring Head Gardener Tom Coward.

We are delighted to be at the Ritz Carlton in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday 5th November. 

Join us at The Ivy on 1st December for the London Universities Dinner.

The first City & Finance networking drinks went off well last week although apologies must be extended to the OBs that we lost along the way, as the venue (Rocket, City) was bursting at the seams on a busy Thursday evening.

We are thrilled to invite you to OB drinks in Hong Kong on Wednesday 19th September at the China Club from 7pm.

Our Spring OB Hong Kong Drinks were a huge success at Mezcalito, a newly opened and exciting bar specialising in the Mexican Mezcal, on Central's On Lan Street, home to some of Hong Kong's finest bars and restaurants. 

Twelve of us gathered on a beautiful summer morning to be given a most interesting tour of the Ridgeview Estate Winery at Ditchling. After an introduction by Matt Stragnell, the vineyard manager, to the vines which cover some 8 hectares growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes we were given a tour of the whole process by which the ‘Champagne’ is produced. The stainless steel grape storage tanks and champagne press were of particular interest, as was the bottling line.
