Over the last three or four years, we've lost three of our main venues for various reasons (although we have gained a couple!). Now we're in danger of losing a fourth: the future of the Civic Hall (Venue 1) is uncertain. There are various parties with differing ideas on its future. Cottingham Springboard Live Music venue is backing the Save Our Civic Hall group, which believes the use of the hall should remain in public hands for public use of everyone, rather than certain charity or private groups that might restrict the types of activities the venue can be used for. Please support the Civic Hall: click the image above.

The New Adelphi Club, Hull


 

One of the original inspirations for the Springboard event's desire to showcase fresh, unsigned local original talent (other than John Peel and an intense dislike of karaoke) was fired by Hull's New Adelphi Club and its commitment to taking a risk with new or little-known acts (ask around, you'll soon discover many of them went on to fame and fortune). We'd like to thank Paul Jackson at the Adelphi for that inspiration, and show our solidarity with promoters who engage with grassroots music and encourage its accessibility for everyone.

 


 

 

Dedicated To The Memory Of Lesley Caruana

 

The Springboard team would like to dedicate the Cottingham Springboard Free Live Music Festival to the memory of Lesley Caruana, who passed on after a long and determined fight against cancer. Wife of Dennis (who was one of the original Springboard founders and still continues his involvement), Lesley actively supported the festival and the musicians right from the festival's beginning. From her hospitality to the festival's performers to her inspiration of individual musicians, she was a great friend to many many people, and will be sorely missed by the Springboard community.

She is stardust
She is golden
And she's found her way
Back to the garden
