Unplugged At The Walls is an album by British rock band Marillion released in 1999. It was recorded in a small restaurant in Oswestry June 25 and 26, 1998 as a strictly acoustic set. Lead vocalist Steve Hogarth is reported to claim "We offered to play a gig in there for a free meal and some beers."

As soon as the fans found out they were going to perform in the restaurant, everyone wanted to come and see them. They eventually had to sell some tickets, and those were sold out in less than a day or so. Fans from all around the world found their way to the small town of Oswestry to hear the band perform, and the response was so great that the band also figured they had to tape the thing. The band rewrote much of their performed material for the gig. They also perform their version of Abraham, Martin And John which appeared later on Marillion Christmas 1999 fan-club only release in a studio version.

Unplugged At The Walls was released on the band's own label, Racket Records.
