Marc Almond copyMarc Almond – OBE -Singer-Songwriter, Musician and Campaigner. For services to Arts and Culture

Marc has enjoyed several number one hits across 38 countries and has sold over 30 million records worldwide. He is daring and unapologetic about standing up for gay rights on a public forum, which allowed for others to follow where previously they had not been able. His work challenges homophobic attitudes in many countries. He continues to inspire the young artists of today and his pioneering work in the pop/synth genre is paid tribute to over and over in contemporary music.   Since his near fatal accident in 2004, Marc has become a staunch Ambassador for the Headway Charity.  In 2017 he was made Doctor of Philosophy by Edge Hill University.

In 2013 he was awarded the Icon Award by Attitude Magazine and the Ivor Novello Inspiration Award, an industry recognition of the enormity of his work and his influence on the music industry.
