Guest Speakers

We aim to get interesting speakers to attend each branch meeting.  If you know someone you think would be a good speaker, or if you would like to share your knowledge on a specific topic, please contact us -

Branch meetings are on the 3rd Saturday of the month in the Club Room upstairs at the Young Vic. Details of the meeting times and places are announced on twitter, facebook and in the branch newsletter. Everyone is welcome so come and meet us!

Our aim is to pool the talent and resources of actors, writers, directors, designers, singers, models, artists and producers and through our networking and club events to offer support, to open doors, to create possibilities.
