Busk Fir The Airts raises £185.17

If you happened to be in Newton Stewart on Saturday 20th April 2019, you'd have heard the many buskers who performed outside the former RBS building to raise funds for the proposed new arts centre project, The Vault. A fabulous £185.17 was raised taking the overall total past the £2,000 mark!

A huge thanks to the many musicians who helped out on the day and to everyone who so generously donated money.

Superb night at The Vault

Huge thanks to Connor Clark & The Matador Kings and the brilliant Kasama for a truly memorable gig at The Vault Arts Centre on Saturday night. Absolutely class performances from both bands and an unforgettable night of live music. Looking forward to round 2 in early 2020!

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.
