While London theatre’s most coveted accolades were being handed out on stage at the Royal Opera House, around the corner thousands of theatre-loving fans gathered in Covent Garden Piazza to watch a live relay of the Olivier Awards with MasterCard and enjoy live performances from some of the capital’s hottest shows.

Our photographer Pamela Raith was there to capture the excitement.
