On Thursday 26 January, iconic British ska band Madness will present the owners of Camden’s famous Dublin Castle pub in London, with the prestigious PRS for Music Heritage Award.
The ‘blue plaque’ award will celebrate the venue that gave the band their first ever gig nearly forty years ago, marking a turning point for the now world-famous group.
Madness will reveal the PRS for Music Heritage Award plaque at a red carpet event where the band will talk about their climb to fame and the important role that small live music venues play in providing a platform for great British music.
The event is being held as part of Independent Venue Week, a seven day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them.
Madness most recently released their 12th studio album, Can’t Touch Us Now, which debuted at No.5 in the UK Official Albums Chart.
A press release and images from the event will be distributed at midday, Thursday 26 January.
