Winners received the highest number of votes. There were some really close runner up positions but the aim of this vote is not to crown winners, the aim is to get some names out there and support local independent businesses. I hope you’ve discovered somewhere new to eat, drink or a different musician or band to check out. A full list of all music nominees will be on the Book Live page soon so you can book, listen or attend some gigs!
Winners can inbox the page or email their contact email address to receive a certificate.
