The Vault is the place to be...

Make sure you don't miss the inaugural rock night at The Vault Arts Centre, Newton Stewart, this Saturday 5th October featuring Glasgow band, the outstanding, Anchor Lane with support from The Dynamite Kings. Doors from 7:00pm and, due to a monumental cock-up, it's BYOB so a cheap night too! Boss!

Farewell to Creebridge House Hotel

It was with much confusion, and sadness, that we were informed earlier this month that our long term festival hosts, Creebridge House Hotel, have booked a wedding over the festival dates in 2020, ending what has been a fantastic relationship between the charity and the hotel over the past 6 years.

6th annual music festival

The 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over 12th-14th July 2019 and, after another outstanding programme of events in 2018 which saw us hosting Scottish Highland Dancing competitions and, as ever, some of the biggest names in traditional music, it looks set to be another packed programme and is really living up to it's reputation as one of the best rural arts festivals in Dumfries & Galloway.
