We will have Christmas Turkey or a vegetarian option along with the usual trimmings, sweets, mince pies and coffees etc.
We have a really interesting guest speaker for the night too. Dr Peter Marshall is - amongst other things - a prolific writer and a thoroughly fascinating chap. Peter has written a plethora of books on psychology and various other aspects of the human sub-concious mind. He has also written several books on book-keeping and an award-winning novel. All in all some twenty six books to date.
After we over-eat and drink copious amount of alcohol we're going to have an open-mike show. Bring your various CDs, minidisks and other tools of the trade if you wish to partcipate. We have a PA system in place.
Tuesday January 4th 2016:
Committee meeting at 7:00 PM | Branch meeting at 7:30 PM
We are delighted to welcome all members living, working or just passing through South Wales to our monthly Branch meetings. We meet on the FIRST TUESDAY of every month at:
TYN-Y-TWR TAVERN, ST ILLTYD’S CLOSE, BAGLAN
PORT TALBOT SA12 8AU. (7:30 PM.) *** EXCLUDING JULY AND AUGUST. ***
Please do your best to attend any of our meetings.
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 artists. 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.
