Critics’ Circle To Honour Danny Boyle

The Critics’ Circle, the UK’s only professional association of critics of drama, music, film, dance, and visual arts, is celebrating its centenary in 2013 by awarding Services to the Arts honours for the first time in its history to five key cultural figures who have made a significant impact on the arts.

Danny Boyle, the late Sir Colin Davis CBE, Sir Nicholas Serota, Max Stafford-Clark and Sir Peter Wright CBE  will all be celebrated at a special event on Tuesday 7 May at the Barbican Center in London.

Oscar winning filmmaker Danny Boyle most recently served as Artistic Director for the triumphant opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The acclaimed British director adds this latest accolade to a cinematic CV that includes  Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, 28 Days Later, Trainspotting and most recently Trance. Whilst not basking in the grateful adoration of the nation, Boyle is presently working on an unlikely sequel to cult classic Trainspotting.
