You can also find us on Facebook, search for Equity - NI National & Branch Committees.

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 here.

Branch meetings are generally held on a Monday, 4 - 6 times throughout the year.  We usually meet at the MAC or the Lyric but please check your emails and the Facebook page for confirmation.
