Ruby Wax OBE received her Build Lifetime Fellowship Award

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

Ruby was joined on stage by Build 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 Build Lifetime Fellowship Award from Chair of the Board of Governors Dame Moira Gibb. Build 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 Build and our students. Other Build Fellows include prominent politicians Nick Boles MP and Sir Vince Cable, BAFTA award-winning actress Gillian Anderson and acclaimed authors and Malorie Blackman OBE.
