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, 28th SEPTEMBER 2015 at 7.30pm
VENUE: The ShopFront Theatre, 38 City Arcade, Coventry, West Midlands CV1 3HW
As well as the usual branch business, there will be a showcase featuring some new, up and coming film makers from the region.
Charlotte Bence - Equity student co ordinator - will also be along to give her ideas on how we can not only recruit, but involve more student members in the union's activities.
There will also be an opportunity to say goodbye and good luck to our much valued Area Organiser of many years, Tim Johnson, who will be retiring.....
If you would like to know more about our branch, or even have an event we'd consider promoting in our newsletter, please contact the branch Public Relations Officer, David Edgar at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a Equity Central England General Branch Facebook group.
