Matilda the Musical has earned itself a whopping ten nominations for this year’s Laurence Olivier Awards, which is the maximum for which it was eligible, including Best New Musical!

The four young actresses playing Matilda – Sophia Kiely, Eleanor Worthington Cox, Kerry Ingram and Cleo Demetriou – are up jointly for Best Actress in a Musical, while Bertie Carvel and Paul Kaye are up for Best Actor in a Musical and Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical, respectively.

Other nominations go to Matthew Warchus for Best Director, Rob Howells for Best Set Design and Best Costume Design, Hugh Vanstone for Best Lighting Design, Peter Darling for Best Theatre Choreographer and Simon Baker for Best Sound Design.

The Olivier Awards are the UK’s most prestigious theatre awards, recognising excellence in professional theatre in London shows. They’re often considered to be the theatre industry equivalent of the BAFTA Awards or the UK equivalent of Broadway’s Tony Awards.

The awards will be handed out on the 15th April, at the Royal Opera House. The ceremony will be broadcasted live on BBC Radio 2 and on the BBC Red Button services – who knows, you might even see a nattily dressed Tim (on the TV, not the radio)!

You can view a full list of all the awards and nominees on the Olivier Awards website here.

Huge congratulations to Tim and everyone at Matilda the Musical on this phenomenal news!

Tim is to perform at The Secret Garden Party 2012, as it celebrates its 10th birthday, at Mill Hill Field in Abbots Ripton on the 19th to 21st July. He’ll be joined on stage by his distinguished band, Pete Clements and Brad Webb. Collectively they’ll surely have no trouble at all in complying with the Arts & Expression theme for this year: “Standing On Ceremony” despite all three being seated for most of the show…

Tickets are now being sold on a tiered system and they are available here.

More information can be found on their Facebook page and the full line up is on the festival website www.secretgardenparty.com

Tim will be pottering over to the Kew Royal Botanical Gardens with his not-at-all-weedy band, Pete Clements and Brad Webb, on the 5th July 2012!

The show is part of their summer series of events, Kew The Music, and Tim will be a special guest to Pink Martini, who are a thirteen member ‘little orchestra’ that draw their inspiration from the romantic Hollywood musicals of the 1940s and 50s.

Other shows in the series include Status Quo, Will Young, Gypsy Kings and M-People. Details of these shows and tickets purchasing information can be found on the Kew Gardens website.

Due to the high demand for his satirical lyrical trickery, musical athleticism and sanguine wardrobe choices, Tim’s added a second show at Largo at the Coronet in LA on the 10th April 2012.

Tickets are available exclusively online via Largo’s website here.

This is an intimate venue, holding just 280 people. Tim’s gigs always sell out very quickly so best snap up those tickets fast!
