Harry Lochrie & Billie Jones at The Harbour Inn, Garlieston

Harry Lochrie, proprietor at The Harbour Inn in Garlieston, receiving his framed print of the Overall Highland Winner in the 8 Years & over Beginners section at last year's Highland dancing competition, whose trophy was sponsored by The Harbour Inn. Could you support us this year?

Businesses or individuals who sponsor at the Overall Highland Trophy level or above (see How to Sponsor) have their business name engraved on a winners trophy and receive a framed print of the winning dancer with their trophy which can take pride of place at your business or at your home and demonstrates your committment to supporting young people's projects in the region and your support for the important arts, culture and heritage of Scotland.

Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival would like to say a huge thank you to Harry & Carol Lochrie and everyone at The Harbour Inn, Garlieston, for their support in 2018 and we look forward to another fantastic year of Highland dancing competition again this year, thanks to your support.

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.
