Back once again!

September is such an exciting month! Here's what's going on.

Back once again!


After a break last month, we’re back with lots of Aberdeen events, culture and general happenings. The city is again bustling with cultural delights as we head into Autumn! From art exhibitions that capture emotions and relationships, to exciting live music nights, film screenings and the return of the Wayword Festival.

POST was created to share and support Aberdeen's creative community. Over the next few months, we want to do more to support local indie businesses. That includes things like creatives selling their work, indie coffee shops, and pop-ups. If we can lend a hand during tough times and help our audience discover your business, that's fantastic. We're all on this journey together.

Aberdeen is bursting with exciting things happening all the time, both on the surface and within our communities. If you’re running an event over the next month, have a big release, or are starting something new or have a story to tell, please get in touch. We’re here to spread the word.

Chris & Kevin 💛
