Springboard offers a range of competitive and non-competitive classes for music and drama students of all ages, conducted in a friendly and supportive environment. In 2024 we celebrate the centenary of a performing arts festival in Brighton & Hove.

Springboard takes place during the first three weekends in March and encourages the general public to come and enjoy the performances. The 2024 Festival is now over, but some of our most accomplished performers, past and present, will be taking part in a series of lunchtime concerts at the Brighton Unitarian Church on Fridays in May to celebrate Springboard’s centenary.  We look forward to seeing you there.
