Springboard festival - Brighton & Hove



2015 Festival Highlights 

Springboard's evening of highlights was a spectacular success with over 250 people in the audience including the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Denise Cobb and Springboard's generous main sponsor Professor Christopher Liu of Tongdean Eye Clinic. The variety and standard, as well as the atmosphere of the whole event, impressed the enthusiastic audience.

Over 40 performers took part in solos, duos and a choir. Musicians and actors of all ages presented an outstanding selection of what Springboard had seen and heard over the previous March weekends, from classical guitar, singing, doublebass, cello, viola, violin, piano, flute, clarinet and cornet to poetry and plays.

As one audience member said 'I was at the highlights concert on Saturday 28th March and was delighted by the unbelievably high standard of the performances'.

Thank you from Springboard to all who took part in this memorable event.
