Wherever you are based in the UK, there will be a branch: a community of Equity members who meet as a group to discuss the issues facing the industry, both locally and nationally.
Branches hold regular meetings, organise and campaign. They may do this 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, which are then submitted to Council and to the Annual Representative Conference and which can shape the future of the union.
Equity has both General Branches, which are open to all members, and Variety Branches, which are specifically for members who work in variety.
Get involved now: find your local branch.
