Wishing us all a happier New Year x

It has been a tough year for the arts but it's nothing compared to those suffering from, or affected by, this terrible illness and our hearts go out, this Hogmanay, to those people and to those that work tirelessly to protect us, and provide for us. We are all dearly hoping for a happier New Year.

Digital sign goes live at The Vault

Very excited to finally get the digital display installed and live at The Vault Arts Centre. This should have happened months ago but global pandemics care not-a-jot for plans! The display will highlight what's on, new products & special offers, festival and Trad Music Trust news and TVYP updates.
