The Corn Hall win Norfolk Muddy Stiletto Award

We are the Best Arts, Culture and Theatre Venue in Norfolk as voted for by YOU in the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2024!
Now in their 11th year the Muddy Stilettos Awards celebrate the best independent lifestyle businesses across the country and 2024 has been the biggest year for the Awards ever.
The Corn Hall was first nominated by dedicated volunteer, Suzanne Kayne, closely followed by a number of our brilliant supporters. In April we were advised that we were one of 5 finalists in our category for Norfolk. All the big names in Norfolk’s vibrant Arts, Culture and Theatre scene were named as Finalists and, as the only non-city and non-coastal based finalist in the category, we faced tough competition and a big test – but as ever YOU really rose to the challenge.
During a frenetic and intense voting period at the end of April, our volunteers, audiences, visitors and supporters galvanised to get behind us to vote for The Corn Hall. And we’re thrilled to say that YOU did it! We secured the greatest number of votes and have been crowned as winners. We are so excited and thankful! What an achievement!
Regional winners from every category will now go through to the National Finals which take place from 3 to 11 July where the Muddy Stilettos Editors will judge who is the Best of the Best in each category, announcing the National Winners on 11 July 2024. But whether we win the Nationals or not, we are THRILLED! THANK YOU!
Keith Philpot, Head of Operations at The Corn Hall in Diss says…
“We are so grateful to Suzanne and our amazing team of volunteers for nominating us for the Award in the first place. With such an amazing arts scene in Norfolk we always knew that we’d be up against some very tough competition, so to be named as a Finalist in our category was a huge honour and we’d like to extend our congratulations to all our fellow Finalists.
The support from our incredible volunteers and our local community has been nothing short of FANTASTIC! We were absolutely blown away by the numbers of Corn Hall fans, followers and friends who took the time not only to vote but also to encourage others to do so too. We’d like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that nominated us, voted for us and got behind us. It means a lot to us! The team are buzzing!”
Debbie Gaze, Chair of the Board of Trustees of The Corn Hall says…
“We feel immensely honoured to be awarded the title of Best Arts, Culture and Theatre venue in Norfolk not just for The Corn Hall but for the town too. Diss is a wonderful place to live in, to work in and to visit and we are so proud to be a part of it. We couldn’t do what we do without the support of the people of Diss and its surrounding area. We really hope that this Award helps to put this lovely town ‘on the map’. “
We will be attending the Norfolk Winners’ Drinks Reception on Thursday 6 June where we will receive our Certificate and Rosette.
