A SOAP-actress-turned-storyteller is heading to Bromsgrove Folk Club later this month.

Former Emmerdale star Ursula Holden-Gill promises an evening of 'songs, stories and silliness' of Thursday, June 27.

She played cancer sufferer Alice Dingle, wife of Sam, in the long-running ITV soap from 2004-06.

Holden-Gill also featured in Channel 4 comedy drama, Teachers, CBBC's Wolfblood and ITV's Vera before establishing herself as a professional storyteller.

She will team up with musician and comedian, Keith Donnelly, for the show in Bromsgrove.

He was a founder member of highly-acclaimed folk band, Waterfall, with Martin Oram and Gilly Darby, before going solo.

And, as well as performing around the world, Donnelly has written material for Jasper Carrott and Phil Cool.

Bromsgrove Folk Club meets at Catshill Social Club in Meadow Lane, Catshill, and the show starts at 8pm with a short set from local duo MamwiG.

Admission is £8 for members, £10 for non-members and £4 for under-25s.
