Makar Press


Performing their poetry together has always been a key element of the Makar Press poetry collective.  

Their annual Poetry Picnic at Culzean Castle and Country Park, near Ayr, has become an established tradition.  This year it took place on Sunday 26th May.

Their next event, Makars and Music, is also an outdoor event.  It will take place at Dallars House outside Kilmarnock on Saturday 10th August between 12pm and 3pm.  The audience should bring along their own picnic, but delicious home baking and refreshments will be provided. As well as the Makars performing their entertaining poetry, Alan Reid will be providing some delightful music.  You can also check out some of his music on YouTube.  Entry fee is £10.  The event will take place inside if the weather is bad, so numbers are limited to 40 on a first come, first served, basis.  Contact Iain Richards on 01563 884267.
