It’s the Olivier Awards 2013 ceremony at the Royal Opera House, in London, tonight! The glamorous and star-studded event, which honours the very best in British theatre, will be hosted by Sheridan Smith and Hugh Bonneville.

Tim’ll be there, looking spiffing and twinkly, presenting the award for Best New Musical and he’ll be performing a song from the Royal Shakespeare Company‚Äôs production of Matilda The Musical, for which he wrote the music and lyrics.

In April, last year, having received the maximum possible ten nominations, Matilda The Musical skipped away with a Guinness World Record breaking SEVEN 2012 Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical!

This year Matilda The Musical is up for yet another: The BBC Radio 2 Audience Award, which is a chance for theatre audiences to bestow this accolade on their favourite long-running London show. You can see who Matilda is up against and the full list of 2013 nominees here.

The Awards run from 6:30pm to 9.30pm and ITV is showing 90 minutes of highlights 10:15pm to 11:45pm. This will be on the ITV Player next week.

If you’re in London you can watch the arrivals and ceremony on screens in Covent Garden from 4pm, otherwise you can listen live on BBC Radio 2 from 6pm.

There’s more detail and razzmatazz on the Olivier Awards website and for behind-the-scenes Oliviers’ photos you can head to their Instagram page here.
