She's starred in West End musicals, films and TV shows, but now actress and singer Kate Batter is returning to her roots and settling down in Cambridgeshire. But she's not here for the quiet life: she's gearing up to launch a new musical theatre choir in St Ives. The choir will sing hits from Mamma Mia, West Side Story and Les Miserables in the town's Methodist Church and benefit from Kate's experience as a vocal coach and performer. She's played Madame Giry in Phantom of the Opera on the West End and Maria Von Trapp in The Sound of Music's UK tour. Among her onscreen credits are roles in Top Boy, Meet the Richardsons and Mr Selfridge - which was a "life imitates art" moment for Kate.

. Her daughter, Sofia, is five months old and will grow up in Cambridgeshire like her mother did. Kate grew up in Grafham, near Huntingdon, attending Buckden Primary School in St Neots before getting involved with school plays at Hinchingbrooke School. She then moved to London to study music and drama before embarking on her career, which took her all over the UK and the world. "But I love Cambridge," she said. "Immediately when I'm here, I just feel calm. When I was younger all I saw was the McDonald's and the Top Shop sign but now it's a different city to me and I'm happy to be back." Having settled in the area, Kate will begin her choir on September 22 and plans to host a major concert at London Cadogan Hall next year alongside other choirs. But you can expect to see them perform before that, she says, whether at Christmas lights switch-ons or special performances with West End guests.
