My Mate Rumpelstiltskin

My Mate Rumperlstiltskin by Ursula Holden GillMy Mate Rumpelstiltskin is a bitter sweet triad of self-penned stunners that pick up the pertinent theme of social deprivation and sugar it with stories of unusual friendships and Morrisons Supermarkets (seriously)! The show debuted at the very first Hebden Bridge Folk Roots Festival in May 2015 to a jam packed sell out audience and has since received great acclaim at Festival at the Edge and on the national Folk circuit.

Ursula on LaddersUrsula is a unique force in storytelling. She brings her stories and the characters within them to life in an honest, enthralling and thoroughly entertaining way. Her warmth, wit and compassion shine through in every performance. You come away after an hour with Ursula feeling like you’ve got to know a hidden seam of invisible, often eccentric but entirely loveable folk. She is a gem.
