Emily Smith's Songs For Christmas

It is with deep regret that, due to poor ticket sales, we're having to announce the cancellation of the Emily Smith Songs For Christmas concert due to be held this coming Saturday 15th December at Our Lady & St Ninian's Church. All bookings so far will, of course, receive a full refund.

As anyone involved in organising an event/s will know, you rely on an audience to make an event really shine and when you're bringing really good quality acts to the region you have to ensure that you can acheive the level audience you need to make the event, at the very least, break even.

Our sincere apologies to anyone who has already purchased tickets.  You will, of course, receive a full refund and we hope that we can make it up to you by offering you an additional something special at the 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival in July 2019.  Stay tuned for that.

Keep music live.  :|

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.
