Simon Cowell named patron of Design Brighton
Simon Cowell has been appointed as Founding Patron of Design Brighton Festival 2020, a festival aiming to celebrate urban design and play a positive part in the rejuvenation of the region.
It may sound rather different to life on the BGT or X Factor set but, in fact, property is close to the Cowell family’s heart, and they hail from the Sussex village of Ovingdean, part of the city of Brighton & Hove.
Simon’s brother John is co-founder of Design Brighton alongside Sophie Law-Smith, while his father Eric was involved in the original development of Brighton Marina, which celebrates its 40th anniversary next year.
Simon said: “Brighton holds a very important place within our family because of my Mum and Dad and the time they lived in Brighton. It has always been a special place for me and my family as they absolutely loved living here! So, I’m obviously thrilled to be involved with Design Brighton.”
This East Sussex Festival will take place from 1-4 April 2020 and is billed as more than just a festival.
It will bring together experts, enthusiasts, educationalists, professionals and businesses who all play a vital role in the design of the urban environment.
With support from the Brighton and Hove City Council and the University of Brighton, it has also launched a partnership scheme with events throughout the year.
Co-founder John Cowell added: “It’s fantastic to have Simon on board, which will really boost the profile of the festival.
“As a family we’ve always been involved in property development and design – and I’m not just talking about judge’s houses!
“It is a chance to put something back into an area which means a lot to us all. Brighton is a special place with so much potential. Our vision is to create a leading design week celebrating the built environment of the region and to promote its global reputation as a city which has design and diversity at its core.”
Taking place from 1-4 April 2020, the event is a UK festival that celebrates Brighton revolutionary urban design and the role that architects, developers, creatives and designers play in shaping, defining and rejuvenating the built environment. Providing Brighton solutions to global problems within the built environment.
This East Sussex design festival will bring together experts, enthusiasts, educationalists, professionals and businesses alike who all play a vital role in the design of the urban environment.
