Tae Robert Burns

This time last year we celebrated Robert Burns with Dumfries singer Rose Byers and fantastic local piper Karen Keenan, live at The Vault Arts Centre. We would dearly love to be doing that again right now. Until we can again, have a happy Burns night and we’ll raise a dram together soon we hope x

Wishing us all a happier New Year x

It has been a tough year for the arts but it's nothing compared to those suffering from, or affected by, this terrible illness and our hearts go out, this Hogmanay, to those people and to those that work tirelessly to protect us, and provide for us. We are all dearly hoping for a happier New Year.

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.
