The Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Cllr Brian Fitch, accompanied by the Mayoress, Mrs Norah Fitch, attended an evening hosted by BHT Heritage at St Stephen’s Hall in Montpelier Place, to celebrate the building’s history.
Guests heard talks about St Stephen’s Hall and Brighton’s rich architectural history by heritage experts Nick Tyson, Curator at The Regency Town House, Dr Tracy Anderson, Post-doctoral Researcher at The Royal Pavilion and Sara Peskett, BHT’s Heritage Officer.
The evening, which included a three course meal prepared by BHT’s social enterprise and training project, Dine!, was attended by 35 guests, including Baroness Gould of Potternewton, former Member of Parliament, David Lepper, and councillors.
It was very interesting and a lovely atmosphere. The building is magnificent
This is a fantastic building – part of Brighton’s Regency heritage – but it is not just a pretty face – it serves a valuable purpose as a lifeline to so many people
