Aberdeen Events

Aberdeen Events is your first stop to discover the latest happenings in town. We love epic cultural events but we give equal attention to the culture growing within the city. Aberdeen bands, Aberdeen artists, Aberdeen creative businesses, and Aberdeen community events. The events that maybe some local press are less interested in.


The calendar is updated regularly, so you can stay in the loop on Aberdeen Events and plan your days and nights out. Whether you’re looking for family-friendly activities or a night out with friends, there’s something cool here for everyone.

Wonderland Festival

8 September 2022 11 September 2022


Wonderland will see 12 artists and collectives produce 22 brand new artworks which will be installed, displayed and performed across the city centre.

Wonderland is a love letter to Aberdeen. It will feature aerial dancers, soundscapes, films, art installations, an enchanted emporium, and an urban garden all for free. The festival will take place across the city centre in both outdoor locations. You’ll find it in surprising spaces including Union Street, Marischal Square, Broad Street, St Andrew’s Street, the Bon Accord Centre, the Rooftop Garden, St Nicholas Kirk, Shiprow, the Art Gallery, His Majesty’s Theatre and more beloved city sites.

Aberdeen Performing Arts Director of Programming and Creative Projects, Ben Torrie said, “Wonderland is designed by artists and creatives in the North-East and is inspired by people and place. It was dreamed up during lockdown to reanimate and re-imagine our city centre as part of Covid recovery. We invite people to join us in a celebration of our creative city.”

About POST

Kevin Mitchell and Chris Sansbury founded POST. This was from a desire to cut through the noise to share the great things that happen in Aberdeen. They focus on community, culture and also the interesting people of the city. The local artists, businesses and charities; photographers, musicians and entertainers. These are the people that make a positive impact on our city every day. So they use video, audio, writing and social media to amplify the voices in our community. And to ultimately give a platform to Aberdeen folk to engage and tell their own stories.

Recent work includes coverage of Spectra 2023, interviews with We Are Here Scotland founder Ica Headlam; Paralympic gold medalist, Neil Fachie; Aberdeen rapper Chef and his push for success; an article about the pedestrianisation of Union Street; coverage of Nuart Aberdeen and TEDx Aberdeen, as well as coverage of the campaign to Save the Belmont.

We are independent and entirely self funded. We just about cover our costs, but if you would like to help support our work, you could buy us a coffee.

Every one of us has the power, to plant an idea, a tree, a flower
