Cumberbatch looked dapper as usual in a black patterned suit, tie and crisp white shirt and matching pocket square. On the actor’s arm was Hunter, who looked glamorous in a sleeveless black and orange satin Erdem gown that featured a rose print. Hunter, an actress and theatre director, accessorized with her engagement ring.

During the ceremony, Cumberbatch presented an award to Tom Stoppard.

Also in attendance at the theatre awards gala were Damien Lewis and his wife Helen McCrory,  James McAvoy, Luke Treadaway, Sienna Miller, and Naomi Campbell.

Cumberbatch, who has been dating Turner since 2009, announced the engagement in November in The Times of London’s Forthcoming Marriages section. “The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katherine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London,” read the short announcement.


Cumberbatch, who plays Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, is slated to hit the stage as Hamlet in the near future and is filming a BBC special about Richard III in which he plays the British monarch.
