Springboard 2020

Springboard Brighton & Hove


The online entry system is now open for Springboard 2020.

Please take a look at our syllabuses, which are all available on the web pages of the relevant section.

New for 2020:

Singing:  The Dame Felicity Lott Recital Competition
We are delighted to offer two new recital classes (436 and 437). Discretionary awards include a possible performance with Brighton Youth Orchestra, a lunchtime recital, and coaching sessions with  Yvonne Patrick, Lesley Anne Sammons, John Hancorn, Gary Matthewman and Dame Felicity Lott.

Guitar:  Performance Classes
Performers aged 16 and younger are welcome to take part in informal concerts (classes 150, 151, 152) after which they will receive general remarks and written feedback from the adjudicator, but no mark.

Piano:  Talk by Luis Parés (Class 250)
A short talk by adjudicator Luis Parés on organising practice time in the most efficient and effective way. To be held on 29 February or 1 March. Suitable for all ages and of interest to all instrumentalists.

In additional to cash awards, Springboard is offering opportunities to perform in a lunchtime recital at either the Chapel Royal or Unitarian Church in Brighton following the Festival.

We would like to thank all our sponsors, donors and volunteers.  We could not run the Festival without their support.

If you would like to help us either financially or with your time, please take a look at our ‘Get Involved‘ pages.

We look forward to seeing you in 2020!
