We’ve been working with the LSS to bring you some more seminars. These will be offered free via remote access, see below. Obviously as they are in an evening I do need to know we have enough people to make it viable to have the library open so I do need an RSVP. We will only be offering access if 6 or more people commit to coming, so please do let me know if you wish to come – and latterly if you need to change your plans.

Just  email if you wish to come. There is no cost involved so there will be no refreshments but feel free to bring your own. The library will be open from 5.45 to allow you to come in and get settled before the session starts. It should finish about 7 but we won’t chase you out till 7.30 if you wish to network and discuss the seminar.

Local loon, Pete Medden, is down on his luck. With no job, no love life and nae idea fit to dae with himself, Pete decides the only option is to take drastic measures and try something new in Aiberdeen. Following a recent visit to the city’s job centre, he discovers that folk from the granite city have a plethora of weird and wonderful talents all crying out to be shown off, but no-one wants to take them seriously. Could Pete be the man to bring these talents together? It’s time for The Glaikit Showman!
