Yesterday at The Ivor Novello Awards, Marc was presented with The Inspiration Award. The Award was presented to him by music TV producer and management legend, Vicki Wickham. Marc said he was touched and honoured to receive this extremely prestigious award. Marc would like to thank everyone that he's worked with, all the amazing musicians, producers, agents and record companies, over the past 33 years, without whom it would not have been possible. He would like to thank all his fans and listeners for their support throughout his career. Marc says an Inspiration Award is one of the best accolades you can give an artist, not only to inspire his audience and listeners but other musicians and artists too, just as Marc has been inspired by many others. Such is the story of music!

The award winning song cycle Ten Plagues arrives at Wilton's following its hugely successful premiere at Edinburgh's Festival Fringe in August 2011.
Based on eye-witness accounts of the 1665 London Plague, Ten Plagues depicts an incredible journey through London in the midst of the most deadly Plague imaginable. A one-man solo sung performance by Marc Almond, Ten Plagues brings together the worlds of music, theatre and opera in a deeply moving and profoundly relevant piece of theatre.
Wilton's Music Hall is the perfect setting for this show which runs from 24 April to 18 May 2013. For further information and to book tickets visit www.wiltons.org.uk
