The BISC Celebrates 25 Years in Style

Simply put, we had an amazing weekend! Our thanks to everyone who made the trip to sunny Sussex for the BISC's 25th anniversary celebrations. We counted 180 reunion participants over the two days, making the event the largest gathering of Castle alumni ever!

Special thanks must also go to the many volunteers who helped to make the event possible, and to the event and catering staff who worked tirelessly in the heat to keep our guests hydrated and happy. Our photographers, Alex, Dan and Sara snapped away for two days straight and have taken some great photos of the event. Check out the Flickr carousel on the 25th Anniversary Highlights page to see how the weekend unfolded. For enquiries, be sure to contact Alex Read at Alex Read Photography. You can also find more of alumna Sara Greenwood's work @maplegreen on Instagram. 

For those Castle alumni that were unable to attend, we trust at least some of the images we posted of the weekend on social media using #Castle25 reached you, wherever you are in the world. We very much hope to see you next time. If you did spend the weekend with us and have a favourite photo or treasured memory of the celebration that you wish to share, please This email address is being protected from spambots.
