FAQs

 What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Old School has a small carpark butspace is at a premium. Parking on the road is an option but care should be taken to make sure that large buses and emergency vehicles can still pass. There is also lots of space at the nearby shopping centre.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you have any queries, please contact our branch via; info@dyslexiascotlandnortheast.org.uk - one of our volunteers will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Can I/we just turn up on the night?

If you are an adult planning on attending the evening activities, we would prefer that you use the Eventbrite link or contact the branch via info@dyslexiascotlandnortheast.org.uk - just to let us know for refreshments and safety numbers.

If you have a youth interested in attending or joining the XdysleX youth club, we need you to contact us at the above email (info@dyslexiascotlandnortheast.org.uk) to fill in a youth membership form and receive details of when it would be suitable to visit. The youth group has limited spaces and now operates some age related activities.
