Olivier Awards 2017

A week ago today saw the 2017 Olivier Awards at the Royal Albert hall and I was lucky enough to be on the red carpet speaking to some of the nominees and running social media channels.

The first Olivier Awards took place in 1976 with the ceremony being held at the Café Royal, this year’s awards did not disappoint and it was the first time the event was held at the Royal Albert Hall.

This year Harry Potter and the Cursed Child set a record-breaking 9 wins and I was lucky enough to brush shoulders with some of the top talent in the musical theatre world on the red carpet.
