In what is thought to be a world first, celebrity guests will be walking a ‘Green Carpet’ made from real, reusable grass – supplied by WowGrass, an eco-friendly company which uses solar energy and ethical farming methods, growing the grass on biodegradable felt made from recycled British textiles. This is all part of our effort to make these Olivier Awards the most sustainable yet, and we’re also teaming up with fashion rental platform HURR to encourage sustainable Green Carpet fashion choices.
We’ll be streaming our Green Carpet Live show from there on the Official London Theatre YouTube channel here from 4:30 to 5:30pm, with hosts Emma B, Angellica Bell, Frank DiLella and Anita Rani chatting to nominees and presenters as they arrive.
Outside the UK, the Olivier Awards with Mastercard will stream around the world at 5.15pm EST here on YouTube.
