Julian Joy has lived in Chichester all his life, apart from his University years. His first school was Chichester Lancastrian Infants moving through to Chichester High School for Boys where his father, Paul Joy, was his Art Teacher. With three sisters and two brothers, they were raised in the now St Martins Tea Rooms so it’s very nostalgic for him to go back and have a cup of tea in his old living room. Julian’s mother was a nurse at St Richard’s Hospital where he worked at the age of 16 for a year as a hospital porter. He was thinking of medicine before architecture at the time – he went to Chichester College for A-Levels.
He works in the health sector creating master plans and estate rationalisations for County Primary and Mental Health Trusts and is a Design Quality Indicator Assessor for the Construction Industry Council.
Julian is Deputy Mayor of Chichester City Council and a Trustee for the Business 2 Schools Charity. He plays the classical guitar, loves sailing and watching his three sons grow into men. His partner is a National Theatre Actress and CNS Nurse.
