The Proud Group is delighted to be handed the keys to the Brighton Treasure that is Stanmer House. An 18th century manor house nestled between the South Downs and the sea, just ten minutes from the bustling centre of Brighton.

Now local Brighton boy Alex Proud, gallery owner, columnist, owner of the famous Proud Cabaret, London venues Proud East and Proud Camden, has been handed stewardship of the venue.

“I remember my mum taking me as a kid to Stanmer House, she was in tears when I told her I was going to be taking it on.”

Alexander Proud talking to The Argus. Read more of the article here.

Proud Country House stands very close to Stanmer village and Church, within the Stanmer Park. Constructed by the French architect Nicholas Dubois in 1722 in a Palladian style for the Pelham family, it incorporates the remains of an earlier house, and was again altered in 1860.
