Regional Winners

Well that was FUN! The cocktail glasses were overflowing as the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2023 romped to a close last week. Cue an astonishing 77,000 businesses nominated and 800,000 votes cast in 2023. I know, bonkers!

We have always proudly run the Muddy Awards on the basis of being free for all businesses to take part, and on our 10th anniversary, it’s still as exciting as ever to shine a light on brilliant lifestyle indies that make our lives so much more fun and vibrant.

A whopping great THANK YOU to all of you Muddy readers who took part or voted – the Muddy Awards are nothing without you! OK enough waffling, the Muddy Awards 2023 winners are…
