The present club was formed in May 1996 by the amalgamation of two long standing Edinburgh drama clubs – The Makars (est 1932) and Davidson’s Mains Dramatic Club (est 1942). 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 hold regular social nights in our Brunswick Street Lane clubrooms on the second Monday of each month and a variety of events including playreadings and workshops, as well as occasional theatre visits.
We’ve made a short video about us that you can watch below or you can read more about our history, including a list of all productions we’ve been involved in since 1934, at our website here.
