Gallery: Oliviers 2018 nominees’ celebration

By Carly-Ann Clements, Published March 12, 2018

Last week, we announced the incredible performers and creatives who are nominated for this year’s Olivier Awards with Mastercard. And on Friday, we celebrated.

To prepare the nominees for the glitz, glamour and love they’ll experience at the big event at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 8 April, the Olivier Awards threw an afternoon soiree, filled with food, drink, laughs, and the most talented people in Theatreland.

For our annual Olivier Award nominees’ celebration, we took over the stunning mirror room at the Rosewood, London and flooded it with the who’s who of London’s West End.

And not only did the talented hopefuls have a chance to bestow luck and size up the competition, they got to witness four incredible theatre legends receive special recognition for their contribution to theatre. Bob West, Meg Johnson, Duncan Weldon and Paul Elliott all received Special Recognition awards, and attendees heard stories of their amazing and inspirational accomplishments.

Check out photographer David Levene’s pictures of the event above, and start getting excited for next month – because the spectacular Olivier Awards season is well and truly started.

Can’t wait for the big day? 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.
