Welcome to the website of Tricia Stewart, the originator and driving force behind the alternative WI Calendar that continues to be a global phenomenon, raising more than £6 million in the fight against blood cancer. 

Tricia has an amazing and inspirational story to tell. The movie Calendar Girls, the West End stage play and now a brand new musical, written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth, are all based on her story.
