ArtsEd students at the Olivier Awards 2023


ArtsEd made an elegant return to the  annual Olivier Awards on Sunday night at the Royal Albert Hall, when our graduating BA Musical Theatre students performed alongside Shanay Holmes during the In Memoriam section of the ceremony. The choir accompanied Shanay in a spotless performance of Jonathan Larson’s Seasons of Love; a moving tribute to shining lights of the industry who have passed away in the last twelve months.

Taking part in such a prestigious ceremony was a wonderful experience for the students who were thrilled to be a part of such a moving moment in the event.

Performing as a year group at the Olivier Awards was an absolute joy and an honour. It was such a fantastic, inspiring experience and an incredible way to round off the best three years of training!
