Gemma Arterton and Stephen Mangan will host this year’s Olivier Awards on April 13.

The ceremony takes place at the Royal Opera House, and the awards will feature a voice over provided by Julie Walters.

Arterton will appear in the musical version of Made in Dagenham later this year, while Mangan is currently starring in Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London.

The set for this year’s awards has been designed by Es Devlin, who is also nominated for an Olivier for her designs on the play Chimerica.

More details of the line-up for the ceremony on 13 April will be announced soon.

A highlights package of the Oliviers will be screened on ITV.
