Nick Lidster wins Olivier Award for Best Sound Design


Sunday night saw the return of the Olivier Awards to the Royal Albert Hall, a welcome sight after the previous years. Two of our Sound Designers were nominated this year; Ian Dickinson for 2:22 A Ghost Story, and Nick Lidster for Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club. They were up against two incredibly talented Designers and two phenomenal shows – Carolyn Downing for Life of Pi, and Gareth Owen for Back To The Future – so we remained optimistic but knew this was a tough category.

However, it is with great pleasure we can say Nick won!

Olivier award-winning Sound Designer, Nick Lidster.

Sounds good right?


Cabaret took home 7 awards in total, including all four musical acting categories. You can watch highlights of the wins, including Nick’s speech in the video below.


Sending our huge congratulations to the whole team at the Kit Kat Club!

Big thanks to Pamela Raith for the gorgeous photo.
