GIG is a programme for adults across Dumfries and Galloway. It provides a unique opportunity to ‘jam’, experiment with different instruments, and develop songs together in a social and inclusive setting, with regular performances throughout the year. 

Workshops are designed to support participants in experimenting with music, musical instruments and singing/songwriting/spoken word - building confidence in their own musical abilities, and working towards regular performances throughout the year.

All sessions are run by a group of professionally trained Paragon musicians and practitioners who specialise in supporting people with access requirements.

GIG is run in partnership with Leonard Cheshire, Theatre Royal Dumfries, the Dumfries Baptist Church Centre and The Millennium Centre in Stranraer and with support from Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway.
