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)

Tickets £10/8 — available online at Ticketsource (and on the door if there are tickets left on the night)
Doors open 7pm — venue open till 12am; public entry after 10pm
Event starts 7.30pm (duration approx 2hrs with a short interval)
