Cheque presentation with Helen Turner from The Holywood Trust

We enjoyed a busy open day on Friday 29th November 2019 with members of the public popping in throughout the day to have a look around and be one of the first to see the new Winter Programme which contains information about the Centre and what's on from now until February 2020.

We were also joined by Helen Turner from The Holywood Trust who presented Trad Music Trust with a cheque for £14,800 which the organisation were awarded earlier this year to support youth projects at Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival and The Vault Arts Centre.

We were also joined by local Councillor Katie Hagmann who we were delighted to show around and provide more information on what we hope to acheive at The Vault and as an organisation.  Katie was also first to see the new Winter Programme!

Thanks to everyone who popped in through the day, including volunteers from TVYP (The Vault Youth Project), our Youth & Volunteer Development Officer Rhona Jones and members of the Board of Trustees of Trad Music Trust.

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.
