Gallery: Oliviers 2017 Nominees’ Celebration

First Published 14 March 2017, Last Updated 28 March 2017

When you’ve been nominated for one (or several) of theatre’s biggest accolades, there’s only one thing to do: decide what you’ll wear to the ceremony. Oh, and celebrate, of course!

Offering the nominees a taste of the elegance, glamour and lavish experience in store at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 9 April, the annual Olivier Awards with Mastercard nominees’ celebration sees the lucky attendees gather for a casual lunchtime affair to mingle with one another, enjoy some light refreshments, and mark their extraordinary achievements in theatre over the past year with a glass of champagne or three.

Taking place in the Rosewood Hotel’s stunning Mirror Room, this year’s event also saw the revelation of the identity of this year’s host, the wonderful Jason Manford, and also gave us the chance to get the very first reactions to the news – with more than a fair share of modest surprise and absolute delight across the board – from this year’s toast of Theatreland.

Check out pictures from the event taken by photographer David Levene above, and start getting excited for next month; the spectacular Olivier Awards season is well and truly in full swing. Mark our cards as “very, very, very excited.”

You can keep up to date with all the Olivier Awards news between now and the grand occasion on Official London Theatre, and by following us on Twitter and Facebook. You can also follow the Oliviers’ own Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
