Equity has a vital network of branches throughout the UK which give members a voice in the union and much more. Branches hold regular meetings in their local area and all members and student members are invited to attend these to share views and experiences, discuss issues that are of importance to them and put proposals to Equity's ruling body - the Equity Council. Branches also organise a programme of social events and raise money for local charities.
If you are an Equity member or student member based in the area you are able to join the branch (no charge) so please get in touch with the Branch Secretary. If you are a member or student member visiting the area you are very welcome to drop into the next branch meeting and get to know some of your fellow members.
We hold our Branch Meetings bi-monthly on the fourth Tuesday at South Hill Park Arts Centre, Bracknell, Berkshire. We meet in the bar first at 7:00pm and the meeting starts at 7:30pm-9:30pm. See South Hill Park on google maps.
