Live Concert 28th March Update

Aaaron & Nathon Jones

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!

Our original plan was to perform together at The Vault Arts Centre however, considering the seriousness of the current situation and how important it is for us all to keep our distance to help slow the spread of this virus, we didn't feel that this was a very responsible thing to do.

We'll be kicking things off at 8:30pm, live from Newton Stewart featuring Nathon & Rhona Jones and then switching to a live performance direct from Creetown, featuring Aaron Jones.

Update on The Vault Arts Centre

Following the announcement by the First Minister yesterday, we have decided to delay any further 'soft' opening nights at The Vault Arts Centre until it is absolutely safe for us to do so, and for you to enjoy. We hope to be open again this year, but that will obviously depend on developments.

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.
