The Edinburgh Makars
 Home    Events    Book    Members

The present club was formed in May 1996 by the amalgamation of two long standing Edinburgh drama clubs - The Makars and Davidson's Mains Dramatic Club (DMDC). In 2002 the new club formally adopted the name The Edinburgh Makars.

We usually put on two or three full-scale productions a year, one of which is in the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as other one or two night performances primarily intended for club members and friends. We often have an entry in the SCDA One Act Festival. There are regular clubnights on the second Monday of each month with a variety of events including playreadings and workshops, as well as occasional theatre visits and other social occasions.

 We have  clubrooms  in Brunswick Street Lane as well as a costume and scenery store.

Acting is not the only way to get involved. There are lighting and sound designers and technicians, props and costumes, the stage manager, the set construction team and the front of house staff, not to mention the director whose task it is to bring all these together.

If you have skills in any of these areas, or want to learn, we would welcome you as a member.

The annual subscription is £28.00, or you can join as an Associate Member (subscription £14) if you just want to help backstage or front of house.

You are welcome to come along to one of our clubnights or rehearsals free of charge to meet us and find out more, but you will be expected to become a paid up member or associate member if you want to get further involved.

We are a registered Scottish charity  (SCO20999) and are a member of the Scottish Community Drama Association
