South Wales Variety Branch


We are delighted to welcome any members living in South Wales to our monthly meetings. We meet at TYN-Y-TWR TAVERN, ST ILLTYD’S CLOSE, BAGLAN, PORT TALBOT SA12 8AU.

The FIRST TUESDAY of every month. (excluding July and August). 7-30pm

The next meeting of the branch is on Tuesday, 2nd June 2015  at Tyn-y-Twr, Baglan, Port Talbot. 7-30pm. Please do your best to attend. It would be great to see newer/ younger members attending as we need to get more insight into what you expect from the Union & the business. The internet is great for keeping in touch but so much more can be be acheived by meeting face to face & getting to know fellow artstes. We usually have an enjoyable mix of business and pleasure. (And we don't bite!)  Hope to see you there.

Equity has a vital network of branches throughout the UK which give members a voice in the union and much more. Branches are set up by the Equity Council to give members in local areas the opportunity to meet regularly to discuss issues of common concern and to have a focal point.
Members are invited to join their local branch to share views and experiences, put proposals to Equity's ruling body, organise a programme of social events and raise money for local charities.
Equity Student members are also very welcome at meetings. Student members can also volunteer to take an active role in branch activities by standing for election as committee members and other important roles.
Branch Secretaries also give local advice to members in their area and those who are visiting, and some branches now have their own websites which include local news and directories of branch members.
