This is not a drill: the Finals are LIVE!

You’ve voted, we’ve counted (and counted, and counted, and counted…) and FINALLY it’s the moment the nation’s been waiting for. No, not the football, not Wimbledon — it’s the Muddy Awards Finals, people!

A massive THANK YOU for taking the time to support your awesome local businesses this year – over 500,000 of you nominated in the first round of the Awards and, frankly, the response has blown our socks off. And, whilst we wish every brilliant business nominated could make it through, there can only be five finalists in each category and it’s up to you to decide who wins.

The Awards close on Friday 23 July 2021 at 5pm – so if there’s a business you love, make sure you VOTE HERE!
