Ruby Wax OBE received her City Lit Lifetime Fellowship Award

The outrageously witty comedian, writer, actor and mental health campaigner, Ruby Wax OBE, recently joined City Lit to talk about her life, career and receive her City Lit Lifetime Fellowship Award – see the video of the interview below. 

Ruby was joined on stage by City Lit Principal Mark Malcomson, with the pair enjoying a lively discussion about her latest book ‘How to Be Human: The Manual’ – a fascinating journey where Ruby sets out to answer life’s big questions about what makes us human and how our mind works. The evening ended with a glass of wine and a book signing session. 

Ruby received her City Lit Lifetime Fellowship Award from Chair of the Board of Governors Dame Moira Gibb. City Lit Fellowships are awarded to individuals who have shown a significant commitment to adult education in the United Kingdom and who have provided support and inspiration to City Lit and our students. Other City Lit Fellows include prominent politicians Nick Boles MP and Sir Vince Cable, BAFTA award-winning actress Gillian Anderson and acclaimed authors Andrea Levy and Malorie Blackman OBE.
