Welcome to the website of Tricia Stewart, the originator and driving force behind the alternative WI Calendar that became a worldwide phenomenon.

Tricia has an amazing and inspirational story to tell. The movie Calendar Girls and the West End stage play of the same name is based on her story.

Not many people can say they have been played on screen by Dame Helen Mirren and on stage by everyone from Linda Bellingham to Anita Dobson! Find out more about Tricia here.

Click on The Calendar Girls Story to read the real story of the group of Women’s Institute members who initially wanted to raise £5,000 in memory of John Baker, husband of Angela – one of their group, who had died of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma…but who have, to date, raised over £3.5 million for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Tricia regularly undertakes speaking engagements in the UK and around the world. Click on Speaking Engagements to find out more.

And if that weren’t enough. Tricia is also dedicated to keeping the Yorkshire Dales flexible. She runs a number of pilates classes near her home of Linton in Craven. If you would like more information, see the Pilates section.
