Delighted to announce that Trad Music Trust, with outstanding support from the solicitors and team at McCormick & Nicholson, have completed all required paperwork and taken possession of the keys for 40 Victoria Street to develop a new arts, culture and heritage centre in Newton Stewart.
It has been almost 6 months since initial enquiries were made, and a huge amount of negotiation since, but with everything now agreed - and keys in hand - we are very excited indeed about progressing the new arts centre development which will deliver an annual programme of live music, dance and language tutoring and live performances, one-to-one music tuition, arts & crafts exhibitions, arts, crafts and local produce retail sales, music sales and much more in the pipeline!
The premises will also provide dedicated office space for the Trad Music Trust charity and Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival including a permanent box office and information point which we know has been a priorty for visitors to the festival every year.
There's obviously a huge amount to do; we have internal renovations to complete, fitting out the new stage and bar area, painting and decorating etc so please bear with us whilst we work through all of that and we'll keep you posted on developments as things progress.
Exciting times ahead!
