Festival trailer at Newton Stewart Cinema

Now showing at the best community cinema in Scotland, we'd like to say a huge thank you to Newton Stewart Cinema for running the festival promotional film as one of their trailers throughout June/July. We got a sneak peak this morning and it's brilliant seeing it on the big screen. Wow!

The festival trailer features footage from the  2016 and 2017 festivals and was filmed by students from our film making workshops and work experience programmes with support from Cree Studio, a partnership project between Dumfries and Galloway Council and Turning Point Scotland which provides personalised learning and development opportunities in music and short film production for people with learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum conditions, and Sean Williams at Airborne Ltd who were our official film makers in 2017.

You can catch the trailer throughout June at any of the films showing at the cinema starting tonight, Friday 8th June from 7pm, with Deadpool 2 which runs until Thursday 14th June and then I Free Pretty and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society which run later in the month.

Thanks again to everyone at Newton Stewart Cinema.  The festival is a real community effort so we're thrilled to have the support of another local community group.

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.
