Packed weekend at The Vault again

We've certainly hit the ground running at The Vault Arts Centre. A huge thanks to Norman, Brian and Aaron from Breakdown who played a fantastic gig on Friday night, followed by the Dynamite Kings and Conjuring Fate on Saturday night and another brilliant rock night.

Fantastic night with Kate Kyle

The first gig since the official opening and a fantastic night with Dumfries singer/songwriter Kate Kyle supported by Newton Stewart's very own Hamish & Kirsty Sutherland. It was fantastic to see The Vault open and full with an expectant and, ultimately, very satisfied audience. Great night.

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.
