Floella Benjamin is well-known as presenter of TV’s Playschool. In this interactive event Floella takes pupils through her film Coming to England, a stunning adaptation of her autobiography, directed by her husband Keith Taylor, charting her journey from Trinidad to Britain in the early 1960s.

During her talk and Q&A she explores the themes of difference, discrimination and anti-bullying through her own inspiring story of how she adjusted to the challenges of her new life in Britain. As a Baroness in the House of Lords, Floella champions equality and promotes feelings of worth in children. Pupils leave this event truly believing her motto ‘I am worthy!’
