A lung-busting 10km run through the woods and a leg-busting 18km cycle straight afterwards - at this year's Galloway Hillbillies Kirroughtree Duathlon on Sunday 12th May - raised an unbelievable £707 for The Vault Arts Centre. A huge thank you to everyone who donated.

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.
