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. There are regular clubnights on the first Monday of each month with a variety of events including playreadings and workshops, as well as occasional theatre visits and other social occasions.
We are a registered Scottish charity (SC020999) and are a member of the Scottish Community Drama Association. We have clubrooms in Brunswick Street Lane as well as a costume and scenery store.
