TVYP members performing at an open mic night earlier this year.

If you're aged 12-17 and are looking for somewhere to rehearse or practice, or you just want to meet like-minded musicians and performing artists, then get along to The Vault Arts Centre on Wednesday's from 4pm-6pm and utilise the fantastic facilities available at the centre.

The Vault Youth Project (TVYP) rehearsal space at The Vault Arts Centre gives TVYP members the opportunity to come in and use the professional facilities at the centre including:

  • 16-channel PA System
  • Lighting
  • Stage
  • Multi-Cam Recording & Livestreaming
  • Musical instruments (guitars, piano, bass, drums, keyboard)

This will be run in two blocks initially, with further announcements made for Spring 2021:

  • 2nd December 2020 - 23rd December 2020
  • 6th January 2021 - 24th February 2021

If you'd like to get involved with TVYP simply e-mail Youth Project Worker, Rhona Jones, at or call 01671 404924 (during office hours) / 07970 359 557 (outwith office hours).

Due to Covid-19, we cannot allow under 18's to mix with over 18's so the Wednesday group is open to 12-17 year olds only.

Wishing us all a happier New Year x

It has been a tough year for the arts but it's nothing compared to those suffering from, or affected by, this terrible illness and our hearts go out, this Hogmanay, to those people and to those that work tirelessly to protect us, and provide for us. We are all dearly hoping for a happier New Year.

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.
