The Critics' Circle Theatre Awards 2017 is slated to take place at 1pm on Tuesday 30 January 2018 at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London's West End.

The event will be hosted by Critics' Circle Drama Section Chairman Mark Shenton, with regular guest speaker Arthur Smith introducing the prestigious awards in much-loved tradition.

The ceremony is one of the best-loved in the theatre awards calendar with its informal gathering of award recipients, drama critics, theatre practitioners and the media, convivially coming together to celebrate the critics' personal choice of the best theatre, from throughout the UK, during the last calendar year.

Since the Awards' inception in 1989 the theatre critics, consisting entirely of respected and influential working journalists, have prided themselves on offering something unique on the packed theatre awards circuit: each member of the Drama Section independently casts their vote based on personal choice, free of any discussion or industry influence, ensuring a highly democratic voting process.

The Awards, which are once again generously sponsored and presented in association with Nyman Libson Paul Chartered Accountants, leading entertainment industry specialists; and, for the 13th year, supported by Delfont Mackintosh Theatres, will be produced for the second year by leading industry figure Terri Paddock.

Following last year's digital innovation, acceptance speeches will once more be broadcast, streamed via Facebook Live on the day.

You can find previous award winners on the Critics' Circle Theatre Awards website.
