Covent Garden Piazza
The unbelievable evening of entertainment returns to the ITV stage in Covent Garden Piazza from 17:00. Outside the Royal Opera House, this is the only place the UK public can see all the performances and award-giving live as the action from the ceremony is streamed directly to the Piazza on big screens.
Musical theatre stars Carrie Hope Fletcher and Daniel Boys will host the evening, which begins with entertainment from Kerry Ellis, American Idiot, West End Blend Choir, Breakin' Convention Hip Hop Dance Festival and the four Magic Radio Audience Award-nominated shows, Jersey Boys, Les Misérables, Matilda The Musical and The Phantom Of The Opera.
