Sir Lenny Henry to host the Marketing Week Awards

The Marketing Week Awards are back and we’ve managed to line up a very special host on the night – Sir Lenny Henry CBE.

Best known for co-founding charity Comic Relief, he is also an actor, writer, TV presenter and stand-up comedian. He will be joining us on 12 May at The Roundhouse in London to give out the awards, as well as provide entertainment on the night.

The Marketing Week Awards will bring together the best of the marketing industry. From diversity champions and brands placing purpose before profit to those demonstrating trail blazing excellence and innovative strategies, the awards highlight who and what is leading the marketing industry today and defining its future.

With an incredible number of outstanding entries this year from big brands and agencies to leading marketers and their teams, this year is set to be the best yet. And until Friday 8 April we’re offering an early bird special, meaning you could save £500 on the cost of a table.
