5 ways to get ready for the 2020 Olivier Awards

The Olivier Awards, due to take place on the same night, celebrates the best of British theatre. The new musical, & Juliet, led the field with nine nominations. The other stand out musicals of this year was Fiddler on the Roof and the Broadway transfer of Dear Evan Hansen, receiving eight and seven nominations respectively.

Due to the current climate, the official award ceremony has been postponed until the Autumn. A 2020 version of the awards will still take place, congratulating winners in a special event this autumn. However, due to the current climate, the date, location and schedule are still TBC.

Tune in this Sunday from 6pm on Magic Radio and 10:15pm on ITV to celebrate British theatre at its best.
