Finally, February is here and the longest yard that is January is well behind us now. The city wakes from its extended post-festive slumber and now we can poke our wee heads out of the blanket and have a good swatch at what good stuff there is to do outside our collective duvet.
So, if you fancy braving the weird weather and coming back to life with Aberdeen Taxis here’s some of the best stuff that’s going on in Aberdeen during February –
