Festival Partners

The festival wouldn't be the success it has been without the support we regularly receive from our wonderful sponsors and partners. We rely heavily on the support of local businesses and the local community and, every year, we have been overwhelmed by their generosity and support. Thank you for being part of the festival team and ensuring that we can continue to deliver such a high quality event in Newton Stewart and Minnigaff.

If you'd like to get involved we offer partnership packages that feature a range of benefits depending on the level of support you can offer.

Complimentary tickets to events, exclusive access to artists and backstage, features on the official website, in the official programme, spoken acknowledgement at events and the opportunity to site banners, pop-ups and promotional material at events too.

You'll reach good sized audiences at our concert events plus the new festival website attracts around 500 users per month.  We also print between 500-1000 programmes each year which are distributed throughout the region.

Please contact Festival Director Nathon Jones on 01671 404924 if you'd like to get involved.  Thank you.

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.
