The C.A.A. Elected General Commitee & Officers 2017-2018...

We are a Private Members Club open to professional artistes (performing and non performing) in all branches of the entertainment industry.

The C.A.A. President Anita Dobson...

Current President of the CAA is stage, film and TV actress and singer Anita Dobson. Anita was born in Stepney and trained at London’s Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art.

Following theatre and TV roles including Jim Davidson’s ‘Up The Elephant,’ she became a national star playing the emotionally battered landlady Angie Watts in the hit TV series 'Eastenders.' A musical spin off from the series saw Anita reach No. 4 in UK singles chart with ‘Anyone can fall in Love,’ a song based on the 'Eastenders' theme tune. 'Eastenders' still holds the highest ever soap audience rating when 30.15 million viewers tuned in to see Angie handed her divorce papers! Read more on the 'Presidents & Patrons' page where there is also a list of past presidents.

Hon. Treasurer Michael Kennard...

A professional accountant for 35 years, Mike brings a wealth of financial expertise to the club.
