Theatre & Dance


BECTU is the independent union for those working in broadcasting, film, theatre, entertainment, visual art, interactive media and allied areas who are primarily based in the United Kingdom. It offers various IP-related services to members including personal copyright advice, a script registration service and a copyright information booklet.


Equity is a trade union which represents the 'professional entertainment' sector. Their membership includes actors, singers, dancers, choreographers, stage managers, theatre directors and designers, variety and circus artists, television and radio presenters, walk-on and supporting artists, stunt performers and directors and theatre fight directors.

Equity offers copyright and other IP advice, including contract advice, to its members.

InterChange Studios

Established for 25 years, InterChange is a unique multi-functional charity that provides access to services for the disadvantaged across the spectrum of social services, health promotion, education, arts and media under its principal charitable objective and traditional victorian purpose, 'the relief of poverty'. It will sustain and expand the 120 year history of community use at Hampstead Town Hall.

The largest area of expansion will be for the provision of special facilities and opportunities for talented young Londoners and disabled children.

Royalties Reunited

If you're a session musician, recording artist or backing vocalist, Royalties Reunited is the place for you to find out if you are owed money - and claim it. Registration for claiming this money is completely free.

Phonographic Performance Limited collects the money and distributes it to performers in conjunction with the Performers Forum, made up of representatives from AURA, Equity, MPG, Musicians Union, P@MRA and PPL.
