The most respected ceremony in London theatre’s awards season, the Olivier Awards with MasterCard, returns to the Royal Opera House on Sunday 13 April 2014.

The prestigious awards began in 1976 as The Society of West End Theatre Awards, becoming the Olivier Awards in 1984. Run by Society of London Theatre (SOLT), the 2011 Olivier Awards with MasterCard re-established the ceremony as the key theatre event in the UK’s cultural calendar with a star-studded evening of red carpet glamour, theatrical royalty, glittering awards, superstar guests and unique entertainment.

The 2012 Olivier Awards with MasterCard built on its success adding an incredible public event in Covent Garden Piazza, an exclusive event in New York and a live web stream of the illustrious ceremony.

In 2013, the Olivier Awards evolved again. In addition to the ceremony and live Covent Garden event, the awards were seen on major TV channel ITV1, which screened an incredible highlights show soon after the end of the glamorous ceremony at the Royal Opera House.

Details of the 2014 event will be released in the coming weeks.
