Sir Lenny Henry CBE
Award-winning comedian, actor, playwright, producer and presenter, Sir Lenny Henry CBE has been a cornerstone of British popular culture for the best part of 40 years. In that time his many impeccable talents have enthralled and entertained audiences across the generations, on stage, on screen, and even on the high seas.
From his earliest appearances on children's television, through his transformation into a pioneering stand-up comic, and on to his highly acclaimed dramatic performances, Lenny Henry has brought an extraordinary level of professionalism and energy to each and every role he fulfils. This steadfast dedication to his work has earned him a knighthood for his services to both Drama and Charity.
His generosity of spirit has been exemplified by his tireless work, through Comic Relief, to draw attention to the most vulnerable people around the world who depend on the help of others - something our awards winners strive to emulate in the Healthy Homes industry.
Bringing his career full circle, he has returned to the arena of children's television, lending his voice to the CBeebies show, Big & Small, finding a whole new generation to captivate with his unique personality. We are delighted that he will be joining us on the 29th september to present the Energy Efficiency and Healthy Homes Awards.
