Farewell to Creebridge House Hotel

It was with much confusion, and sadness, that we were informed earlier this month that our long term festival hosts, Creebridge House Hotel, have booked a wedding over the festival dates in 2020, ending what has been a fantastic relationship between the charity and the hotel over the past 6 years.

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.
