Our ‘Flaming Ladies of Hay’ project celebrates truly inspiring women both past and present in our little border town of Hay-on-Wye.  

To honour the Flaming Ladies living amongst us we have set up the annual Flaming Lady of Hay Award. Nominations are gathered from the local community throughout the year and the winner is presented with the Norma Kerr ‘Heart of Hay ’ solid silver necklace which is given at our winter Rebels and Misfits event.

To uncover and retell the stories of the extraordinary and mostly forgotten historic female icons of the area we are working with local Historian and Artist Mari Fford.
