Greater Manchester & Region General Branch

Welcome to our Branch page!

What is a branch?

  • A branch is a community of local Equity members who meet as a group to discuss the issues facing the industry.
  • Branches hold regular meetings, they organise events and campaign. This might be by holding a protest against local arts cuts, or by joining forces with other branches and lobbying MPs to support a cause.
  • Branches create motions (like ideas, proposals, rule changes etc) which can shape the future of the union.

We meet every other month in Central Manchester (or currently on Zoom) to discuss what is going on in the industry, to address members concerns and to also socialise and meet fellow professionals. We have Guest Speakers, too. Our direct email address is but if you'd like to get in touch with us in a more informal manner then try us on;

If you are an Equity member or student member based in our area (see the map below) you are able to join our branch for free!
