COMEDY heroine Dawn French will be part of a star line-up in Barnsley this weekend.
The Vicar of Dibley star will be at the Underneath The Stars festival at Cinderhill Farm in Cawthorne on Sunday afternoon.
Dawn will be talking about her career as a writer, comedian and author in the popular afternoon question and answer slot which has previously been taken by fellow comics Jason Manford and Ruth Jones.
Dawn is part of a stacked programme as the family-friendly folk festival returns after skipping a year due to the pandemic.
Singer Paul Carrack headlines on Friday night, Saving Grace - featuring Led Zeppelin superstar Robert Plant and Suzi Dian - take centre stage on Saturday before local hero Kate Rusby rounds off the weekend on Sunday.
