a friend and colleague in London has written to say that he's had a letter from a local colleague who's noted that dance historian and curator Jane Pritchard has been awarded an MBE on this year's Honours list.

i have no further information or confirmation but assuming this is so, and I have no real reason to doubt it, it's a well deserved award. Pritchard was responsible in good part for overseeing the grand Diaghilev exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, where she's a curator, which ended in early 2011 and which reached Washington's National Gallery last year, closing, after being extended in October.

I've also just heard that Gillian Lynne's been made Dame, which, again, I trust is accurate.

I'd heard about Gillian Lynne, but not about Jane Pritchard -- excellent news!  Thanks so much for spreading it!
