Theatre fans are invited to watch this year’s Olivier Awards with MasterCard nominations announcement streamed live here from 12:00.

The host of this year’s 40th anniversary awards ceremony on 3 April, Michael Ball, will be joined by fellow Olivier Award winning actor Imelda Staunton to reveal this year’s prestigious list at an exclusive event at Rosewood London.

Anyone worldwide can tune in at www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk above or www.olivierawards.com at 12:00 to join the celebration and find out in real time who will be in the running for one of this year’s prizes.

Following today’s announcement, there will then be little over a month until the ceremony itself, which will be held at the Royal Opera House and feature star-studded presenters, exclusive performances and, of course, those all-important winners’ acceptance speeches.

On the night the public will be able to watch all the action from the ceremony at the return of the ever popular Covent Garden Piazza event, which will include live performances from nominated shows and a live stream of the event. Fans can also tune into ITV1 for a highlights package shortly after the ceremony.

Check back on www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk later for photos and videos from today’s event.
