The Critics' Circle Theatre Awards are currently taking place at the home of Mamma Mia!, the Prince of Wales Theatre. The ceremony is an informal gathering of award recipients, drama critics, theatre practitioners and the media.

Celebrating the best of theatre from throughout the UK, the Critics' Circle Theatre Award winners are decided by the independent votes of Drama Section members, with no panel discussions, public voting or influence from the theatre industry.

Watch our live coverage of the event, with Tweets from Whatsonstage.com editorial and managing director Terri Paddock and deputy editor Andrew Girvan along with photos from Whatsonstage.com photographer Dan Wooller. To follow Whatsonstage.com on Twitter click here.
