Key Worker Discount for 2021

Thank you x

As a thank you to everyone who is working on the front line to protect and support us all during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis, Trad Music Trust would like to offer a 50% discount on Weekend Passes for Key Workers for next year's festival over 9th-11th July 2021.

Whilst we may have had to close The Vault Arts Centre and cancel this year's Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival, it pales into insignificance when you consider the extreme conditions under which our NHS and front line key workers are having to work just now.

We are hugely grateful for your professionalism, commitment and support at this time and hope that we can offer some relief next July and the chance to relax and unwind with some fantastic music, dance and entertainment in this beautiful part of Scotland.

The discount will be available to all NHS staff, health and social care workers, emergency services, key public services, shop assistants and anyone who works to deliver and distribute food and other neccessary goods.

Weekend Pass tickets for 2021 are on sale now.  Simply click the button below and select the 'Key Worker Discount' ticket type.

Thank you.

Festival Re-scheduled for 2021

Just now, we would usually be full-steam-ahead with preparations for the annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance festival, due to take place over 10th-12th July 2020. It is with a very heavy heart indeed, therefore, that we announce the cancellation of this year's event.

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!

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.
