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 rhona@tradmusic.com 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.

7th annual music festival

This year's Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 however, in response to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, it has been agreed that a much reduced programme be offered with a focus, this year, on the tune and song sessions which will be taking place in venues throughout the towns. We also hope to run a free outdoor concert however this will be dependent on the Scottish government advice and guidance at that time.
