The Olivier Awards 2011



Live from the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Radio 2 brings British theatre's premiere celebration, the Olivier Awards, to the air.

Radio 2's coverage is presented by Paul Gambaccini, with red carpet coverage by Jodie Prenger, and it will bring all the excitement of the ceremony to listeners with awards presentations; special performances from West End casts; guest artists; and international stars.

This year's awards are hosted by Imelda Staunton and Radio 2's very own Michael Ball, with Elaine Paige also presenting the the first ever Radio 2 Audience Award.

The glamour and occasion can also be enjoyed by pressing the BBC Red Button on digital televisions.
