Free summer events for Aberdeen teens

Union Square is tackling the age old ‘nothing to do in the summer holidays’ problem with the launch of the ultimate free events programme for Aberdeen teenagers.
A recent survey* conducted by Union Square found that 85% of parents, guardians and teenagers in Aberdeen feel there isn’t enough for young people to do once school is out.
In response to this, the centre has released tickets for The Summer Hub - a festival of events, from football skills to DJ workshops, Hip Hop classes and dance sessions, and from Mocktail (non-alcoholic cocktail) lessons and Survival Skills training to boutique jewellery making and gaming on an enormous cinema screen.
The Summer Hub will bring together the centre’s retailers and restaurants with community partners like Aberdeen Football Club, Aberdeen’s own DJ Kojo, the Aberdeen Hip Hop School, professional choreographer Claire Hogarth and many more, to keep young people occupied in a safe, secure and fun environment this summer.
“We’ve heard loud and clear from our customers that the perception is there could be more to do in the city to keep young people entertained in the summer holidays. We’ve responded to this with the launch of The Summer Hub,” says Penny Godfrey, marketing manager at Union Square.
“Many of our retailers and restaurants are coming together with some of the city’s most talented and interesting people to bring a really fantastic line up of free events. The Summer Hub is incredibly varied and we feel there is something for everyone. We’re really excited about it.”
