Play in a Day

Play in a day with Ursula Holden Gill

Join storyteller and actress Ursula Holden Gill for a one off special Play in a Day. 

Ursula is an award winning actress. Many parents in particular may remember her as one of the infamous Dingles on Emmerdale. 

You and fellow young people will become playwrights and actors for the day. By the end of the day you'll have created a play ready to perform to your families. Parents / carers are welcome to join us for this at 4pm. 

Young people, please come prepared for the day in dark clothes (all black if possible.) It would be great if you could also bring a selection of scarves with you!

More about the facilitator, Ursula Holden Gill

Ursula is an Award Winning Actress and familiar face on screen. In recent years she has established herself as one of the most unique and pertinent talents on the British Storytelling Scene, working across the theatre, education and community sectors alike and generating firm links with institutions such as Settle Stories, Action for Children and Opera North. From her stunningly characterised adaptations of traditional folk and fairy tales to her signature streetwise savvy, self-penned originals, Ursula can make you laugh and cry, think, reflect and roar again, all in the space of half an hour… In 2012 Ursula was voted Best Newcomer at The British Awards for Storytelling Excellence.
