The largest Variety branch in terms of numbers, Thames Variety covers the whole of London and parts of the
Home Counties. Andy Christie is the branch secretary and arranges a mixed programme of work and social
events for meetings that normally take place at either Guild House (Equity’s head office) or the Club for
Acts and Actors in Covent Garden. Andy says: “We are a very welcoming branch and it would be great to see
some new faces.” Pictured at Covent Garden Piazza are Andy Christie on his unicycle, Beano the Clown
escaping from his straightjacket, Ossie with the bicycle and Diego Spanó as Charlie Chaplin.
