"It’s not only a spectacular location in which to perform, but also represents a stepping stone for moving forward in the most challenging of times for performers, venues and all other creatives.”

"We’re also very proud to be able to provide a showcase for such an excellent line-up of performers from Dumfries and Galloway – and to contribute to the Sanquhar Arts Festival.

“We hope Music at the Multiverse will be just the start for us. In years to come our plan is to host performance events and other activities that appealing to audiences in the local community and beyond.”
