East Midlands Variety Branch

    Welcome to the East Midlands Variety Branch

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 Clive Bumstead 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.

Branch Secretary: contact Clive Bumstead

Chairman: contact Bernie Kayla

PRO/Web/Coms: contact Jimmy Willan
