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

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.
