Birmingham & West Midlands General Branch

Hello and welcome to the Birmingham & West Midlands General Branch.

The social and networking club for professional and student performers and creatives based in the Midlands region. A place to come for help, advice, friendship, support and fun. And it's not just for actors!!

Like all the Equity branches in the UK, the Birmingham and West Midlands branch is run by a committee, maximum of nine Equity professional performers and creatives who were elected by their fellow branch members. They are not employed by Equity, but give up a few hours a month to help give Equity members based in the Midlands a powerful voice through the organisation of campaigns and regional events.

We hold regular meetings and social events which attract members from a wide area, which includes Birmingham and all of the East and West Midlands, so why not bring a fellow member and car share? Our meetings often have a guest speaker or an element of professional development. New and student members are always very welcome.
