Bad Reputation

Don't miss Bad Reputation and The Dynamite Kings live at the Belted Galloway, Newton Stewart, this Saturday 23rd February from 8:00pm; a live music concert with two of the region's most excellent rock/blues bands who are giving up their time to help raise funds for The Vault.

In association with Darren Andrews (Heavier Than Metal Radio Show) we bring you a night of heavy rock and blues and an opportunity to raise funds for The Vault Arts Centre, the proposed new live music venue in Newton Stewart.

Entry is by donation, of your choosing, and not only will you get a terrific night's entertainment but you'll also be supporting new music, dance and language tuition and live performances in Wigtownshire.

7th annual music festival

The 7th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will now take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 following the Trust's decision to re-schedule this year's event due to Covid-19. We are in negotiation with the artists booked for this year and hope to secure them all for 2021, plus a few extra surprises, so we'll be back with another packed programme of traditional music and dance next year. We hope you'll join us.
