The Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival would not be able to build on its year-to-year success without the support of our members and patrons. We are fortunate to be in receipt of the generosity of individuals and organisations who have continuously invested in the charity and secured a bright
future for performing arts in Dumfries and Galloway.
