Music Makeover Restaurants 2016 winners announced
PRS for Music crowns Shuck's from Norfolk as its Music Makeover Restaurants 2016 winner.
More than 280 restaurants from around the UK entered to win the £5,000 Music Makeover along with a bespoke music consultancy and exclusive event featuring PRS for Music members. The calibre this year was extremely high, making it a tough choice for our judges to pick from the five finalists — all could have been worthy winners.
Winner - prize value £5,000
Phil Milner, Shuck's, Norfolk
Runner up – prize value £2,500
Will Templeton, CAROUSEL, London
Shuck's was awarded the top prize due to its musical vision, dedication to supporting local community and the managers' enthusiasm.
We’re absolutely delighted and thrilled that we have won, and we still can't believe it. Improving our music offering was something we had always planned on doing but we couldn't afford it, and it's going to make a massive difference to our business, inside and out. Winning the PRS for Music prize means we will now be able to showcase local talent and give our customers the ultimate dining experience. We can't wait to have Steve Levine's expert input as well.
CAROUSEL in London (Marylebone) was awarded the runners up prize of £2,500.
Shuck's really impressed me due to its unique setting, goals and its dedication and support of local community and produce. Phil's vision of how music could really impact and grow the restaurant was impressive and we are very much looking forward to working with him and his team to make this happen.
Work has already begun to assist with the implementation of the winners' prizes and prepare for the exclusive launch event in Norfolk. PRS for Music would like to thank all this year’s entrants; it’s been a fantastic first year.
