Don’t forget to buy your Olivier Awards tickets. They go on sale today, 1 March 2011, at 10am.

Olivier Awards 2011It’s the first time in over 10 years that theatregoers are able to attend the Olivier Awards ceremony, this year at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on 13 March.

Tickets are available for the Balcony and Upper Circle, priced £25 to (a rather high) £65.

Controversially, you can buy through See Tickets (visit the Olivier Awards website) only using a MasterCard credit card as MasterCard are this year’s Awards sponsors. You can also pay in cash or Society of London Theatre theatre tokens if you can get to their tkts booths in either Leicester Square or Brent Cross.

Tickets will sell out within minutes, so if you miss the chance to attend in person then the awards are being broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and via the BBC’s red button TV service.
