Livestreaming direct from The Vault Arts Centre

Live events and music tutoring will soon be beaming direct to your home thanks to support from The Holywood Trust, Newton Stewart & District Round Table and D&G Council who have provided funding to install state-of-the-art livestreaming camera equipment at The Vault Arts Centre.

The equipment, which will be made available to local musicians, bands and performing artists as well as being readily available for members of TVYP (The Vault Youth Project), will provide facilities not only to livestream events but also for recording demo/promo videos and delivering 1-to-1 and groupwork video-conferenced music tutoring.

Installation and testing will be taking place over the next few weeks and, from there, we will be announcing a programe of virtual events which, it is hoped, will provide some relief over the Winter nights ahead.

We'll also be letting you know how and when you can utilise the equipment for your own projects, including availability for TVYP members.

Delighted to see the toilet facilities works under way at The Vault Arts Centre which will provide a wheelchair accessible cubicle and additional toilet facilities/capacity in both the ladies and gents toilets, with as little disruption as possible whilst we're currently closed to the public.

Tae Robert Burns

This time last year we celebrated Robert Burns with Dumfries singer Rose Byers and fantastic local piper Karen Keenan, live at The Vault Arts Centre. We would dearly love to be doing that again right now. Until we can again, have a happy Burns night and we’ll raise a dram together soon we hope x

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.
