The Grand Order of Lady Ratlings (established in 1929) welcomes professional performers and those directly connected with the theatrical profession.

The ultimate accolade for a member is to become Queen Ratling, who presides for one year over the Lodges as well as the charitable work of the Order.

The Grand Order of Lady Ratlings is a unique showbusiness organisation. 

Lady Ratlings come from all different backgrounds and members include actors, singers, dancers, circus performers, magicians, agents and other people directly connected with TV, film and theatre industry.

Members fundraise for the Cup of Kindness (reg.1101033), they produce shows, organise events and above all enjoy the camaraderie of a shared background in showbusiness. Click here to go to The Cup of Kindness
