New digital display board at The Vault Arts Centre

Very excited to finally get the digital display installed and live at The Vault Arts Centre. This should have happened months ago but global pandemics care not-a-jot for plans! The display will highlight what's on, new products & special offers, festival and Trad Music Trust news and TVYP updates.

The original purpose of the digital display was to showcase the packed Spring/Summer programme of events and activities that were lined up to take place at the centre over March-August this year, neatly linked with the quarterly printed programme that was ready for the printers at the time.  A lot of work had been done, but that all had to be put on hold for obvious reasons.

We've adapted, progressed new and previously sidelined initiatves, invested in new technologies, facilities and resources and are ready to launch the new music shop, a Winter programme of livestreamed events, deliver 1-to-1 and groupwork music tutoring and push forward with the brand new programme of events and activities for The Vault Youth Project.

A new dedicated website is on it's way too, but it's nice to finally have the display up and running and we hope you'll find it informative and useful.

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.
