Brand new Aberdeen events venue announces preview event for all


4th July 2019

P&J Live is Scotland's brand new, state-of-the-art events venue. In preparation for opening later this summer, P&J Live will open its doors for the first time to the public on Saturday 10 August 2019 with a free, ticketed event showcasing the venue and putting it to the test.

Nick Waight, Managing Director at P&J Live commented: “It’s great to be at this stage of the development of P&J Live. We’re excited to give everyone a chance to come and have a look around our new home, and help us test some things out while also sampling what we’ll have on offer at this world class new venue. We’re delighted with the support we’ve had in bringing this new venue to the city and want to offer all a chance to take a look before our busy calendar of events begins.”

Aberdeen City Council Co-Leader Councillor Jenny Laing added: “I am delighted we have now reached the point where the public can come and have a look around the Council’s new multi-million-pound venue. The scale and quality of the complex is hugely impressive and I would encourage local residents and visitors to take this opportunity to come and see it for themselves. We are confident P&J Live will attract major artists and events to the north-east which will both satisfy the needs of local residents and ensure the area competes on a global scale.”

Preview @ P&J Live will be a free, ticketed event with a variety of activities taking place. As well as a chance to take a look around this brand new transformational venue, you can enjoy entertainment from local musicians, our food and drink offering, cooking demonstrations, kids activities plus much more. We’re also looking for some help in testing the new venue, so you’ll be flushing the toilets, taking part in a full evacuation of the building and just generally providing us with feedback on the facilities.

Fancy finding out where you’ll be sitting at a concert, maybe even take to the stage, see where you might be dining if you’re planning to come along to a banqueting event, try out the offering at The Mill Coffee Bar, have a sneaky peek around 195 Bar & Grill, sit in a VIP box and definitely try out the Show Deck, there is lots to see and do.

This event is open to all; however we do need to limit the capacities of the sessions so make sure to get your tickets quick. In a bid to be more sustainable, all tickets will be electronic.

Session times on 10 August are 10.00-12.30, 13.30-16.00 and 18.00-20.00, bars will only be open for the late session and family activities will take place at the first two sessions.

General tickets are available from 10am on Friday 5 July from .
