His first stage musical collaboration, with Bill Forsyth, based on the iconic Scottish film ‘Local Hero’, debuted in Edinburgh.

His first ever drink collaboration on Local Heroes No.3 gin with the Portobello Road distillery.

Looking ahead to 2020, Mark continues to work on many other projects; including the upcoming London production of ‘Local Hero’ at the Old Vic.

“It was great to see so many of you on the Down The Road Wherever tour. We had the best time ever out there. Wishing everyone happy holidays and a peaceful new year. Love, MK”
