Creebridge House Hotel

You are cordially invited to Creebridge House Hotel, Minnigaff, on Friday 16th March 2018 from 6pm to hear the confirmed line-up for this year's festival and to reflect on 5 fantastic years so far via photos, film, live music and unique special offer ticket discounts for this year's event.

The evening will be very informal; we'll be showing festival photographs from every year of the event on the big screen along with the fantastic promotional film which we commissioned in 2017 plus there'll also be live music from the festival trustees and committee which we'd be delighted if you joined us for; please do bring your instruments and voices in other words!

As well as a warm welcome, guests will also receive a unique special offer code which can be redeemed online to receive a 10% discount on tickets for this year's festival.

We hope that you can join us for a night of music and songs and to celebrate with us as we look forward to the 5th anniversary of Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival.

6th annual music festival

The 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over 12th-14th July 2019 and, after another outstanding programme of events in 2018 which saw us hosting Scottish Highland Dancing competitions and, as ever, some of the biggest names in traditional music, it looks set to be another packed programme and is really living up to it's reputation as one of the best rural arts festivals in Dumfries & Galloway.
