The Drill Hall Initiative – A Bright New Future For Loreburn Hall

The Drill Hall Initiative, founders Sandy Sweetman and Simon Robertson stated “We are delighted with the decision that Councillors have made regarding The Drill Hall Initiative and the future of the Loreburn Hall in Dumfries.


We don’t underestimate the importance of this project, which we have been working on for a number of years and are fully committed to, for the benefit of all.
Today’s decision means we can now start work to turn our vision into a reality for the benefit of the people and economy of  Dumfries.
The support we have received throughout this process from Council Officers, Councillors, our Steering Group, potential funders and the public is very much appreciated and we will continue to work with all these parties to ensure we are best placed to deliver a sustainable and appropriate future for this much-loved venue.
We now await further approvals as part of the process and will use this next period to establish more detailed conversations with our potential funding partners, tenants and stakeholders.
