Help Us Make 99 Things to See and Do in Dundee!

For the last couple of years we have been crowdsourcing some local wisdom on the 99 local spots in Dundee that are just unmissable. The last guide was extremely popular, as you might have seen popping up in local venues. It even got an extra reprint of 9,000 copies, for both universities in the city. See the guide here!

Printing these guides is important for the many visitors that come to the city – during degree shows, design festival, big concerts, short term work and as of September, the V&A – but also for everyone who lives here to explore what is available locally and enrich the overall city experience.

For the guide to be truly relevant to what is going on Dundee we need the help of as many people as possible! If you can spare a couple of minutes, please fill the form below with the key places in the city that should not be missed! The more people who pitch in, the better the selection of the 99 spots will be!



You have until Tuesday, April 17th to fill it in and make sure you are heard! Just as a refresher, here’s what was in the guide last year!
