Time to try something new? We thought so!
We’re very excited that a new programme of activities has come Perth & Kinross in 2022, and we’re hopeful that some will continue long into the future too!

Have a look through our different event series – maybe you’d like to pick up a new skill, try yourself in sports or just come out for a coffee and chat – we hope you find something you like the look of!

Keep checking back – more activities being added regularly!
