Welcome to all our NW London members and visitors!

The North West London Equity Branch covers Camden (excluding WC1 & WC2), Brent, Barnet, Harrow, Westminster (W1, W9, NW6 & NW8 only). See our area map and list of venues in our area.

If there are other issues you want to see our Union tackling locally and nationally. Contact the secretary at

Are all your details, your CV etc., up to date in the Members' Directory? Did you know you can add Show and Voice reels?



The branch is a long established and lively one, holding meetings at 10.30 am on the first Saturday of every month at the Central School of Speech and Drama on Eton Avenue, NW3. You'll even get a cuppa ... Donations to the kitty always welcome!

If you are an Equity member or student member based in the area you are welcome 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.

If you go to Documents you can read our monthly Newsletters and Minutes.

Come and hear our regular guest speakers: casting directors, directors, actors, theatre journalists ... the range has been wide and exciting.

We have a Playreading Group and usually do two performances of any chosen script at local venues. They are only partly script-in-hand and are presented to a paying audience. The standard is high. The scripts are chosen from contemporary works submitted to the Playreading Committee. Members of the branch direct, produce and perform.

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.
