Posted on behalf of DUSA The Union

Follow us in to a world where everything and nothing makes sense...

Our story takes a hallucinogenic turn as we invite you to join us in the Mad Hatters Tea Party. The venue will be turned upside down as we give you various immersive rooms within our our magical underworld.

From a musical perspective, guests in our Tea Party range from specially selected headliners, underground acts, local talent and of course our team of residents representing the Fantasia sound!

The multiple rooms will each be pushing a different musical direction… Our mansion gates open mid-october and there’s something for all invitees to indulge in.

We’re delighted to welcome MARKO LIV as our headliner!

FerretFest 2019

Posted on behalf of Leona-Jayne Page

Dundee’s premier and first yarn gathering of a substantial size, is back for its second year.


FerretFest is happening again on the 9 th and 10 th of November.
This year it’s a ticket only event with yarn selling and chat on Saturday 9 th and workshops on the 10 th .
Just like last year we’ll be joined by Bobbie and Joy from The Knitting Goddess. They’ll be bringing
plenty of yarn and lots of samples for you to try on. There will be tea and coffee available.

As last year was so busy we’ve split the day into two, and you can choose which time suits you best.
Thanks to everyone who suggested this.
The first session will run from 10:00 to 13:00. Then we’ll have an hour to get ourselves sorted out
and grab some lunch before reopening the shop from 14:00 to 17:00.
To give as many people as possible the chance to attend we’re going to ask that you only book for
one session. Tickets are free – they’re to allow us to manage numbers.
