Welcome to Scotland's newest and most exciting contemporary performance and meeting space in the heart of the Glenkens community. Called The CatStrand after the very small stream that used to run underneath it, the name also reflects the stream of activities that flow through it.
Not only does The CatStrand promote a varied music, arts and exhibition programme - it also boasts up-to-date training and conference facilities, offers local information and a cafe, and runs regular computer classes and exercise classes. It is home to the CatStrand Cinema and there are plenty of things to do for both the younger and older members of our communities. A central focal point for the whole of Dumfries and Galloway, the CatStrand welcomes individuals, groups and businesses wanting to hire fully equipped meeting rooms. The CatStrand aims to offer a range of high quality events, activities and facilities, with full disabled access, to suit every taste and every visitor - all under one roof.
