FREE EVENT

Concessions available for under 25's and Over 65's only.

Trad Music Trust would like to welcome musicians and performing artists to join us in celebration of the return of live music, with a tune and song session weekend at charity's fantastic new venue, The Vault Arts Centre in Newton Stewart. Bring your instruments and voices and join us for a long overdue session of music.

Current guidance states that Dumfries & Galloway will be in a Level 2* Covid protection level from 17th May 2021* which whilst it will allow for the performance of live music, still requires social distancing measures to be in place so places will be limited over the weekend and we'd definitely recommend that you book a table in advance, to avoid disappointment.

We are able to host up to 6 adults from 3 households, per table, indoors and up to 8 adults from 8 households, per table, outdoors.  Outdoors we have 4 x 8 seater and 2 x 4 seater tables and indoors we have 2 x 6 seater, 2 x 4 seater and 2 x 2 seater tables. 

Friday 21st May 2021 - 12noon - 10pm
Indoors - 20 spaces remaining (as of 19/05/21)
Outdoors - 40 spaces remaining (as of 19/05/21)

Saturday 22nd May 2021 - 12noon - 10pm
Indoors - 19 spaces remaining (as of 19/05/21)
Outdoors - 40 spaces remaining (as of 19/05/21)

Bookings
You can book by e-mail at festival@tradmusic.com or by telephone on 01671 404924.  If no-one is available to take your call, please leave your name, contact phone number, how many will be in your party and whether you'd prefer indoors or outdoors.

Covid-19 Safety
The premises will operate a strict one-way system throughout the weekend, which will be clearly signposted throughout.  There will also be automatic hand sanitising stations at the entrance and exit which we'd advise you use any time you enter/exit the premises.  Social distancing of 1m will be required to be adhered to however we'd recommend that you still aim to keep 2m apart to ensure.

*if the protection level, or date, changes then we may be unable to host some elements of this event.

7th annual music festival

This year's Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 however, in response to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, it has been agreed that a much reduced programme be offered with a focus, this year, on the tune and song sessions which will be taking place in venues throughout the towns. We also hope to run a free outdoor concert however this will be dependent on the Scottish government advice and guidance at that time.
