The Vault Arts Centre

It is with a heavy heart that, as a result of the current public health situation with Coronavirus, we are announcing the closure of The Vault Arts Centre from the 17th March - 30th April. Our plan is to re-open on 1st May 2020, subject to advice and guidance from the Scottish government.

Trad Music Trust is a responsive and community-led organisation that cares deeply about its staff, volunteers, audiences, performing artists, tutors and the local communities we serve.

As a result of the current public health situation with Coronavirus we have decided, following - as best we can! - the advice from the Scottish & UK Governments, to take a series of measures which are detailed below.

Concerts & Tuition
From today (Tuesday 17th March), all programming for public events - concerts and tuition - is cancelled until 1st May 2020.

Private Bookings
For outside groups using The Vault Arts Centre for their own private room bookings, we will not be accepting any bookings for dates prior to 1st May 2020.

We will make further announcements once the situation becomes clearer and we hope that you'll join us for a packed programme of activities and events once we're able to safely begin those again.

We'd like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time.

Thank you
Nathon Jones
Project Co-ordinator & Festival Director

Live Concert 28th March Update

Just a wee update to say that Aaron and I will not now be performing together tomorrow night but will, instead, be broadcasting to you separately from our own living rooms. As a result, we have rescheduled for an 8:30pm start once all the little ones are safely tucked up in bed! Don't miss it!

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.
