You’ll no doubt have heard about the Europe refugee crisis almost every day for months now. But among the daily news headlines the voices of those who have fled conflict and persecution can be lost – especially the voices of women.
Today is different. Ten women will be sharing their personal stories at the Hay Literary Festival in Hay-on-Wye.
These women all have a different story to tell. They have found their voices and formed a strong support group at the free English lessons provided by the British Red Cross in Newport.
Now they are putting their English to the test –performing in front of a festival crowd.
Don’t have tickets to Hay? Here is an exclusive sneak peak of what they have come to share.
