Sarah Hemingway and Maureen McAllister from the Palace Theatre collected this lovely award from Lisa Buckland of Muddy Stilettos Devon at an event overlooking the Exeter skyline this week.

The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2022 involved consumers voting for the most brilliant local businesses across 28 Muddy counties, in partnership with fab national sponsor Healthily and Devon partner Kitsons. This year, an astonishing 75,000 businesses nominated and 765,000 votes cast in 2022.

As the Muddy team say: ‘And nine years on from the first Awards, it’s still as exciting as ever to shine a light on brilliant businesses that often go undiscovered and unrecognised. But these are Awards voted for by Muddy readers, not editors, so it’s a heartfelt and whopping great THANK YOU from me to all of you who took part or voted in 2022’.

For us here at the Palace it is incredibly rewarding for the team to have their hard work recognised in this way. We see it as a measure of the tremendous support we received from you, our audiences.
