Jeremy Green, CEO of Creative Circle, comments: “The Creative Circle strives to celebrate, champion and nurture British creativity, and tonight was a night to celebrate the very best work that our fantastic creative industry has created over the course of the past year. Congratulations to each and every award winner. We must now go on to nurture those watching from the balconies and continue to raise the bar of creative excellence.”
There were hundreds of attendees on the night, with the industry’s biggest and best joined by dozens of students who watched proceedings unfold from the Roundhouse’s balconies. Having recently played a sold out show at the esteemed venue Electric Brixton as well as announcing their (now sold out) debut US tour, London electronic-soul duo HONNE were hand to wow the crowd with their performance on the night.
