WILD AND WOOLLY TALES OF ABERDEEN - THURSDAY, 8 FEBRUARY 2018

A selection of tall tales, half-truths and actual whacky happenings from Aberdeen's history and folklore.  Did you know that Harry Houdini, world famous escapologist came to Aberdeen in 1908 and carried out a crazy stunt in the Dee?  Was William Wallace's arm buried in Old Aberdeen or Torry?  

Did Hitler really plan to use Marischal College if the Nazis had invaded Scotland?  And did a woman and her son kill the Laird of Northfield centuries ago?These and many more urban legends of the city will be presented in the cosy surroundings of our new favourite venue, The Cult of Coffee - owners Paul and Louise say they will have loads of new cakes to tempt you, so do join us for this storytelling event.  

  • VENUE: The Cult of Coffee, Esslemont Avenue, Aberdeen (map link)
  • DOORS OPEN: 7pm
  • STARTS: 7.30PM
  • TICKETS: £10.00 each all tickets; Book online via Ticketsource (click HERE

HOORS, HARPIES & HARRIDANS - MONDAY 12 FEBRUARY 2018

Do you hate Valentine's Day? Hearts and flowers make you hurl? Here is Hidden Aberdeen's antidote to the singletons' nightmares - a selection of stories about real and fictional ladies associated with the city who caused a stir including:

  • Maggie Creek - the brothel keeper in Justice Street who was witness to the murder of John Sampson, the Black Drummer in 1809...
  • Catherine Humphrey - 1830 poisoner of her butcher husband, James and thus the last woman in Aberdeen to be hanged...
  • Caroline Phillips - journalist and suffragette, whose activities irked her boss at the Aberdeen Journal, and whose independence lead to a falling out with Emeline Pankhurst... 
  • and some we know less about including Mrs Christian Milne, wife of executioner Johnny Milne, who was fined and imprisoned for braking the windows of her old home after her husband's death in 1831, and the mysterious "Forty Piggies", a swine-keeper who inspired a poem, but not much else.

With musical accompaniment from sound artist, Haworth Hodgkinson, and possibly, some live drama with a twist, this show promises to be an enlightening twist on this sickly sweet season.

In our newest venue, Spin Aberdeen, the only record shop in Aberdeen with a pub attached, we can promise a well-stocked bar, and some gin promotions for all you lovers of the botanical spirits! More details to come on this!  (Wheelchair accessible)

  • VENUE: Spin Aberdeen, 10 Littlejohn Street, AB10 1FG (Map Link)
  • DOORS OPEN: 7pm
  • STARTS: 7.30PM
  • TICKETS: £10.00 Adults/ £8 Concessions; Book online via Ticketsource (click HERE
