Welcome to the official website of Baroness Floella Benjamin, OBE

Hello and welcome to my brand new, redesigned 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.

We are still working hard on the site, so expect a lot of changes over the coming weeks and months.

Some sections of the site I highly recommend you take a look at are listed out below:

It’s over nine years since my beloved mother ‘Marmie’ passed away. I miss her so, but feel her presence in everything I do. 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 Beating Bowel Cancer
