MacArts Events

MacArts, Galashiels Events

Inspired by the visionary spirit of Dunc MacKinnon, a prominent Borders promoter who brought high profile acts to the area in the 1960s, the Duncan MacKinnon Music and Arts Trust was formed in December 2011 to create a state-of-the-art theatre, music, arts and community venue in a disused listed building of historic and architectural significance, in the centre of Galashiels.

MacArts is run by a small (but perfectly formed) team of volunteers and staff who pride themselves on running a friendly, welcoming venue with excellent hospitality. MacArts is fast becoming popular on the live touring circuit with established and up-and-coming bands.

Capacity: 300.
