This year we've got an added bonus as weve created an Aberdeen trail map called the Aberdeen City Challenge. Visitors have the chance to win some fabulous artwork, jewellery, gift baskets, vouchers and lots more prizes simply by visiting and collecting 10 signatures from any of the 25 venues taking part around the city.
This is a fantastic way to see just how many creative businesses and individuals we have right here in Aberdeen, so come on why not take the challenge. Challenge pamphlets can be picked up from venues across the city, most of these can be found on the expanded aberdeen map on the main NEOS catalogue map.
