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.

7th annual music festival

The 7th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will now take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 following the Trust's decision to re-schedule this year's event due to Covid-19. We are in negotiation with the artists booked for this year and hope to secure them all for 2021, plus a few extra surprises, so we'll be back with another packed programme of traditional music and dance next year. We hope you'll join us.
