The Critics Circle

Our Centenary/Our Awards

Dates and Venues

Published: 18/10/2012

We have a Centenary in 2013 so watch this space.

 It will include a day of seminars at the Victoria and Albert Museum open to the public on Saturday 27 April at which some of our members will talk about their work, answer questions and defend our trade against all and sundry.

There will be a week of films at the Barbican chosen by prominent critics and we are holding a one day conference at the Central School of Speech and Drama later in the year at which members of the Drama section will be speaking. A history of the Circle is also being published and although that is for circulation to members only extracts will hopefully appear elsewhere and on this site. Full details of the programme will be posted in due course.





The Critics' Circle Film Awards - Sunday 20 January at 5pm in aid of Missing People. Nominations will be announced on December 17.
