* 2016 note: Springboard Festival – Brighton & Hove Performing Arts Festival – was formerly known as the Brighton Competitive Musical Festival and started in 1925 under the auspices of Brighton Borough Council. Competitions were held in the Pavilion Estate, including the Corn Exchange, Royal Pavilion, Dome and Pavilion Theatre.

The development of the Festival was largely the work of Olive Von der Heyde who remained involved from the beginning until her death in 1997.
