Actor and comedian Lenny Henry discusses his life, work and values in conversation with Oscar-nominated screenwriter William Nicholson

Comedian, actor and writer Lenny Henry is one of Britain’s most highly respected comic actors. Mercurial and open-hearted, his work has spanned four extraordinary decades at the heart of British entertainment at a time of both cultural and political change. In conversation with Oscar-nominated screenwriter William Nicholson, Henry will reflect on his life to share his values and the truths he stands by today. This annual series event is inspired by E. M. Forster’s 1938 pamphlet which famously began ‘I do not believe in Belief’.
