Our Branch Mission Statement:

We are the West & South West London Branch of Equity UK. Equity is the UK trade union for professional performers and creative practitioners dealing with contracts, pay and conditions for aspects of the performing industry in theatre, screen, new media and variety 

We are committed to empowering members in their search for work.  We believe in working at a grass-roots level to actively support members. We are focused on strengthening and helping our branch members build their professional skills and creative contacts. 

We strive for equality and fairness throughout our profession. Positivity, support and encouragement towards each other is of paramount importance. Our branch operates a zero-tolerance policy towards any and all forms of discrimination, bullying and violence.

Carpe Diem! Stronger Together.


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.

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