Over the years, we’ve had quite a few celebs and VIPs who’ve come to visit the College – here are five of our favourites!
- Fatboy Slim
Back in 2012, Brighton’s legendary DJ and dance music pioneer Fatboy Slim (aka Norman Cook) hosted an exclusive ‘Ask Norman’ Q & A session at the College. Norman was really friendly and happily obliged with our students’ endless requests for selfies and autographs… legend!
Dragon’s Den star Deborah Meaden is one of our most famous ex-students – she studied business here in the late 70s and came back to visit us in 2008. Deborah was very lovely and friendly (unlike her TV persona!) and had lots of positive things to say about her time at the College.
Shadow Secretary of State for Health Andy Burnham visited us in 2011 and said “’City College is a brilliant place which is full of activity and you get a great feeling from being here.” We’re not going to argue with that! 🙂
A face that will be very familiar to Soap fans among you, Nick Miles (aka Emmerdale’s Jimmy King) gave a masterclass to our Acting students in 2009. “They gave me some of the most intelligent questions I’ve had to answer in years!” said Nick.
Brighton Pavilion MP Caroline Lucas, who made history by becoming the Green Party’s first ever Member of Parliament, has been at the College many times but we love this photo from when she visited our City College East campus in 2011.
