She made brief appearances in the films A Severed Head and Take A Girl Like You, both in 1970. In the theatre she has appeared with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the English Stage Company at the Royal Court, and the Theatre of Comedy.

Hughes was one of the explorers who voyaged to the planet Arg in the (now lost from the BBC) fourth episode of the second series of the 'science-fiction' quiz The Adventure Game in 1981, where she was evaporated in the Vortex game. She also guest-starred in the metaphorical and esoteric Doctor Who story "Kinda" (1982) as the scientist Todd, alongside actors Peter Davison, Richard Todd and Simon Rouse. She also appeared in the Torchwood episode "Something Borrowed" as Brenda Williams. She is also known for her role as Glenda in The Queen's Nose (1998–2000).
