Dewar Arts Award (2014)

Dewar Arts Award (2012)

Yorkshire Ladies Council of Education (2012)

I had the privilege of attending a lunchtime concert on the day by Ms. Martha Hayward... the musical content was absolutely superb. D. Bradley (2015)

A room transfixed by a performance of Copland's Pastorale at Holy Trinity Leeds @leedsmusic by Martha Hayward - quietly brilliant. Joe Wilson. (2013)

I would never have thought of having a singer at my wedding, but having heard Martha sing several years earlier, when organising my own wedding, I thought it would be a really nice touch during the signing of the register. Right from the start, Martha was both enthusiastic and accommodating. Our church organist described her as a delight to work with and our guests loved her. The church organist subsequently took Martha's details with the view to recommending her to future brides and grooms. She certainly made our ceremony that bit more special. G. Hutton
