“Thank you very much for such a successful day. It was lovely to see the string workshops and hear everyone playing and the children really enjoyed it. She was a wonderful adjudicator and her personalised feedback was really very helpful and considered.” Parent
“I loved the weekend! Springboard is a really interesting festival because the workshops mean that there is some real contact with the children and hopefully, that stimulates more interest for the future.” Adjudicator
“The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming and provided a place to get the very best out of the students, so thank you! Quite a different experience from other festivals I have been involved in. I thought the adjudicator was excellent. I loved how she addressed each student in a really helpful, positive way and she was absolutely spot on in her observations and advice.” Teacher
“My daughter so enjoyed her whole experience at the Festival. It is so beautifully organised and the adjudicators are so encouraging. It is wonderful to hear so many children playing, some of them truly exceptional!” Parent
