The Olivier Awards

In light of developments due to the spread of COVID-19, the Society of London Theatre has taken the difficult decision to cancel the Olivier Awards 2020 at the Royal Albert Hall on 5 April, following the government's advice and closure of London’s West End theatres.

However, ITV will broadcast a special Olivier Awards Greatest Moments programme on Sunday 5 April at 10.15pm in its place.

And don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about this year’s nominees! Winners will be announced in a special ceremony and event which is likely to be held in the Autumn, we’ll update you with more information as soon as possible.
