Your cultural highlights of 2011

Our critics have had their say about the cultural highs of the past 12 months – but what did we miss? Tell us which moments from the world of culture made your 2011 a year to remember

As we approach the end of the year, now is the time to reflect on the best performances, albums, architecture, exhibitions, films and TV of 2011. Some of our critics have already listed their favourites: Adrian Searle picked Steve McQueen's film Shame, as one of his highlights; Susannah Clapp declared Michael Sheen's staging of The Passion in Port Talbot "the year's revelation"; and for Judith Mackrell it was Lucinda Childs' luminously structured Dance. Despite Alexis Petridis's momentary fear that he had turned into his dad, he thought AlunaGeorge "suggested the same balance of sonic innovation and commercialism you found in R&B a decade ago". Philip French meanwhile, felt the year's outstanding performances were by British actors: Colin Firth (The King's Speech) and Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin).

Below are the links to all our critics' cultural picks of the year, but what did they miss?
