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. You are invited to attend at any time as an audience member (£4.50 a day/£8.00 a weekend, available on the door for cash or by card). Full timetables are available on the section pages of the website, or click here for a list of the not-to-be-missed events.
