Central England General Branch
Hello and welcome to the Central England General Branch.
The social and networking club for professional performers and creatives based in the Midlands region. A place to come for help, advice, friendship, support and fun. And it's not just for actors!!
Like all the Equity branches in the UK, the Central England branch is run by a committee of nine Equity professional performers and creatives who were elected by their fellow branch members. They are not employed by Equity, but give up a few hours a month to help give Equity members based in the Midlands a powerful voice by organise campaigns and regional events.
We hold regular meetings and social events which attract members from a wide area, which includes Birmingham and all of the East and West Midlands, so why not bring a fellow member and car share? Our meetings often have a guest speaker or an element of professional development. New and student members are always very very welcome.
We meet about nine times a year usually on the second Monday of the month at 7.30pm in:
The Old Royal, 53 Church Street, Birmingham B3 2DP.
The Old Royal Public House is at the junction of Church Street and Cornwall Street - only a short walk from Colmore Row (head for The Grand Hotel and follow Church Street down the hill, past Hotel Du Vin).
Car parking is plentiful and is free on the street from 7.30. Snow Hill Car Park and Snow Hill railway station are both close by.
