We are delighted to announce that the presenter for the 2016 British Book Design & Production Awards is Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE, who has been in show business for over 45 years, appearing on stage, film, radio and television.
Best known in households across the country for her children’s programmes such as ‘Playschool’ and ‘CBeebies’ Bedtime Stories’, Floella has been recognised through numerous awards and accolades, including an OBE in 2000 and a Special Lifetime Achievement BAFTA Award in 2005.
In 2013, she was made a Fellow of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and throughout 2016 has been promoting their Shakespeare in schools initiative.
We look forward to hearing from her at the awards, which is set to be a glittering evening, celebrating the very best in British book design and production.
The winners of each category will be announced on Thursday 10 November at a stunning ceremony at the prestigious Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, London. To book tickets, please click here.
