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, maximum 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 through the organisation of 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 welcome.

We usually meet on the second Monday of each month.


NEXT MEETING: MONDAY JUNE 8th. VENUE: TBC

Our last meeting was on Monday, May 11th, 7.30pm at The Grosvenor Casino, Fiveways Leisure Complex, Broad Street, Birmingham, B15 1AY.

Our guest speaker was Photographer Aimee Spinks www.aimeespinks.com

 Aimee is an internationally published photographer who specializes in working with actors.

She hosted an interactive workshop that aimed to help understand and implement, the small changes to expression and posture, that can make a dramatic difference to your headshots.
