Springboard Festival

The Springboard Festival is a week-long festival which collates a range of performances over eight nights, from amateur, community and professional companies and artists. The festival, in Coventry, takes place at the Criterion Theatre and will take place from Saturday 25th March to Saturday 1st April.

The festival strives to provide opportunities for emerging artists of all ages and backgrounds, as well as supporting the creative economy of Coventry and providing a varied and rich artistic programme to audiences! On top of this, the Criterion Theatre and Springboard Festival are committed to producing diverse and inclusive art which will serve as a catalyst for community creation.

Each night of the festival will see two or sometimes three acts of contrasting and complimentary genres, including drama, new writing, poetry and spoken word, multi-media performances and musical offerings. There will also be accompanying art exhibitions and installations!

New artists are being announced every week so keep your eyes peeled! Confirmed acts so far include the following; John Bernard, Small Hours, The Sonoplasts, Mikael Petersson and Emilie Lauren Jones, Rebellious Sisterhood, Sweet by Srabani Sen, Voices from the Dark, Emilie Lauren Jones Poetry Club, Wes Finch and Jasmine Gardosi, The Pursuits of Pee’er Gynt – Liv Dineley, Hattie – Bev Andrews, Fast, The Fat Chance Show – annA rydeR and Nicky Cure, Wild Swim, AND Keith Donnelly.

There are a limited number of Early Bird Season Tickets which can be purchased for £40 here. These tickets will allow entry to all performances across the eight days. If you would prefer to buy individual tickets for each day, then you can also purchase them via the link.
