Calling all 18-24 year olds!

We've had a fantastic response to the Newton Stewart Arts Centre Community Survey, with over 350 responses so far, but we want it to be as representative as possible - you'll help shape new music, dance, language and arts services in the region - so if you're aged 18-24 we'd love to hear from you.

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.
