London theatre's most 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.
On 9 April 2017, the Olivier Awards with Mastercard will take place at the Royal Albert Hall for an evening celebrating London's incredible theatre industry with awards, stars and fantastic performances.
