About lunch time I think. Go early, plenty to eat and do in Covent Garden.

I think it's later than that, the radio 2 coverage isn't until 6pm & they are bound to do a bit of red carpet coverage before the ceremony.

6.30 would seem to be the actual on stage start time from the email they sent out


. The red carpet is 5.00-6.25pm, when the ceremony is scheduled to begin.

Yes! Was very fun, but a bit too much wasted time for my liking! The Billy Elliot performance was brilliant, especially the second time after they had won the award as you could see the billy was having the time of his life! Will definitely be trying to make it again next year! (Assuming in not in the opera house picking up my best actor award)

Yes, I was there. Actually I didn't feel that cold. Four hours well spent. I got there around 3, and the crowd was just starting to build up. Saw some sound checks, the main stage show, and stayed till the audience award. Def would like to go next year.
