This is your opportunity to share your experience and concerns. The branch is here to represent you, so please come and join in the discussion!

We will be announcing the new branch committee for 2020 and 2021.

If you find you're interested in the Meet Up, but you're unable to physically attend due to geography, transport, health, care responsibilities or anything else, please be aware that we offer all members the chance to dial in via a live online video room. It's simple to do, without the need for extra downloads or special software. Please follow this link for more information. 


Members attending the Meet Up should arrive to the main entrance/bar of Bristol Old Vic by 7:15pm, where a member of the committee will collect you, to take you to the Meet Up room (rehearsal/performance spaces, which are generously being offered for free to the branch by Bristol Old Vic). Some signage will be in place in the bar to help you find the group.
All Equity members are extremely welcome, especially new faces, or those we have not seen for a while. This is your branch, and it's important that you get the most out of it.
