Two pubs have each won £10,000 to further enhance their live music credentials.

The Maypole Inn in Derby and The Hickory Inn in Halberton, Devon, scooped the top prize in the Music Makeover competition run by licensing body PRS for Music.

They beat around 175 other pubs to win the cash that will be used to improve facilities at their pubs.

Adam Dakin of the Maypole said: "I'm over the moon to have won. I can't believe it. It's given me the chance to realise my dream of making the Maypole into a really cool music pub."

Edward Sproat of the Hickory added: "We are absolutely ecstatic. We never thought that we would win and can't quite believe it. We'd like to thank PRS for Music for giving the chance to improve our music equipment and our staff and locals for supporting us."

PRS for Music's team of live music experts will now work with the landlords to transform their pubs into live music havens, with top of the line equipment and a post-makeover launch party.

The Wheatsheaf in Didcot and the Music Café in Leicester were highly commended and won £2,500 each.
