Do you need the app to book Dundee WinterFest tickets?

The Dundee WinterFest app is a one-stop shop for everything to do with this inaugural event for the city.

You’ll be able to book Dundee WinterFest attractions and hold all your tickets in one place, find out more information about what’s going on during the event and get access to the latest updates (including any surprise appearances) through notifications.

Plus, unique offers will also be available through the app.

It also includes a useful guide to other Dundee attractions including landmarks, restaurants, hotels and bars. It’s free to hospitality operators who want to list their business.

Don’t worry though, you can find out more and book Dundee WinterFest attractions through the website if you prefer.

And you can turn up on the day for a wander, although there is no guarantee of spaces on attractions for those without tickets. Booking in advance will ensure the whole family or group can take part in the activities at the same time, on the day you plan to attend.

So what is there to do during Dundee WinterFest? Here are three things to check out during your visit.
