Errollyn's latest work is a BBC Proms commission for Catriona Morison (mezzo soprano, Cardiff Singer of the World, 2017) and BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The work is a homage to the painter, Howard Hodgkin who died in 2017. Errollyn is grateful for the assistance of Andy Barker (Hodgkin's assistant) in her research. Errollyn is honoured to take part in a concert of song, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 at 13.00h on 8 March 2019, International Women’s Day.

It concludes with recent pieces by Trinity Laban composition professors Soosan Lolavar and Errollyn Wallen. Performers are Trinity Laban students, alumni and staff, including a special guest appearance by Errollyn Wallen herself. There is also one surprise number, to be revealed on the day itself…
BBC 100 Women has announced its list of 100 inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2018.

With their help we will explore a variety of themes, including using anger to spark action, and uncovering women from the shadows of history.

Ranging in age from 15 to 94, and from more than 60 countries, the BBC 100 Women list includes leaders, trailblazers and everyday heroes.

Some will be telling us about what they will be putting in the Freedom Trash Can - our digital bin for all the items women feel hold them back.

Others will bring us stories of achievement against the odds - from the British woman who used her jail time to create an inspiring business, to the Afghan girl who was almost swapped for a boy.

The BBC 100 Women of 2018 are listed in alphabetical order below, with their age, profession, country of birth and biography.
