Felix lived a remarkable life. From modest beginnings he created one of Britain’s most successful magazine publishing businesses, achieving worldwide recognition for his contribution to media and establishing himself as one of Britain’s best-loved entrepreneurs. He also enjoyed huge success as a critically acclaimed poet and in 1992 established the Heart Of England Forest Project charity.
