Hae a guid Burns nicht!

We hope you're all taking a moment today, if you haven't already, to celebrate the life and poetry of Robert Burns. Whether you're sat with haggis, neeps, tatties and a dram, or a battered haggis supper and an Irn Bru, make sure you raise a toast to the bard.

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.
