Video: Olivier Special Recognition Awards

First Published 4 April 2017, Last Updated 4 April 2017

On Friday 10 March at Rosewood London, The Society of London Theatre, organisers of the Olivier Awards with Mastercard, presented four highly-respected industry figures – Victor and Lilian Hochhauser (joint recipients), Richard Bullimore and Frank Dunlop – with Special Recognition Awards.

These commend the outstanding contributions made to British theatre by these individuals.

Victor and Lilian Hochhauser’s influential careers as Musical Promoters of international performers have seen the impresario duo establish the work of numerous companies on British shores over the course of six decades, often against a turbulent political backdrop. They have introduced Western audiences to the likes of the Bolshoi and Mariinsky Opera and Ballet companies, who now play regular London seasons, as well as the likes of the Borodin Quartet, Richter and Rostropovich.

Frank Dunlop is a prolific Director with an inspirational legacy on both sides of the Atlantic, leading an expansive career which saw him become Associate Director at the Bristol Old Vic by the tender age of 29, and, a decade later, Associate Director of the National Theatre, where he worked for four years. During this time he founded the Young Vic in 1969, before serving triumphantly as Director of the Edinburgh International Festival from 1983 to 1991. His productions are greeted with regular acclaim on the West End, Broadway and in mainland Europe.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
