Welcome to the official website of Baroness Floella Benjamin, DBE

Hello and welcome to my website. This is where you can find out everything you want to know about me. From my work as an actress, presenter, broadcaster and parliamentarian, to the work I do for charity.

October is ‘Black History Month’ and I have recorded a short celebratory message about the importance of knowing our history and looking to the future, because that’s where our destiny lies. Watch my video message here.

It’s over twelve years since my beloved mother ‘Marmie’ passed away. I miss her so, but feel her presence in everything I do, especially when I find a white feather. A beautiful woman whose legacy lives on and will do forever. Sadly, she died from bowel cancer, that is why I have become a active patron of Bowel Cancer UK
