Festival's thank you

'Whilst we may have had to close The Vault Arts Centre and cancel this year's Newton Stewart and Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival, it pales into insignificance when you consider the extreme conditions under which our NHS and front line key workers are having to work just now. 'We are hugely grateful for your professionalism, commitment and support at this time and hope that we can offer some relief next July and the chance to relax and unwind with some fantastic music, dance and entertainment in this beautiful part of Scotland.' The discount will be available to all NHS staff, health and social care workers, emergency services, key public services, shop assistants and anyone who works to deliver and distribute food and other neccessary goods. Weekend Pass tickets for 2021 are on sale now.
