The votes have been counted and verified. Your very first 2017 Muddy Warwickshire Award winners are…


CONGRATULATIONS to these brilliant businesses and arts organisations in Warwickshire & rural West Midlands south! They are each one of 2017’s very deserving first Muddy Stilettos’ Awards winners. Thank you all so much for taking part and tweeting/Facebooking/shouting from the rooftops and generally getting VERY involved. A big up to our fabulous finalists too, all of whom would have made worthy winners! In some of the categories, you were neck and neck to the finish.

The response to the Awards in our very first Warwickshire Awards this year has been incredible, with up to 100,000 people per day voting across the Muddy Stilettos sites and over 250,000 votes cast! The ethos of Muddy Stilettos is all about celebrating and supporting the most unique, interesting, brilliant local indie businesses, and we hope that this award will give businesses a real boost.
