A renowned venue in Wales is celebrating to the tune of £10,000 after coming out on top in this year's Music Makeover competition.

Porter's Bar in Cardiff saw off opposition from more than 300 other hopefuls to claim the top prize in the competition run by PRS for Music.

They will spend the windfall – which comes with expert advice and a launch party from PRS - on improving sound systems at the venue so they can attract even better acts for their customers.

 

 

Lewis Morgan (pictured above), assistant manager at Porter's Bar, said:

"We're delighted, surprised and humbled to be the winners of this year's Music Makeover. We will use this fantastic prize to give back to all the artists and good people who are the lifeblood of not only this venue but also this city. Thank you so much PRS for Music!"

Pubs across the country entered, including The Anchor Inn, in Wingham, Kent, which won the second prize of £5,000.

PRS chairman Nigel Elderton chaired the judging panel, which included Inapub editor Matt Eley.

He said: "I was really impressed with the entry from Porter's Bar due to their passion, knowledge and understanding of the Music Makeover competition.

"We can't wait to see what the £10k Music Makeover will achieve in their fantastic venue and I have no doubt that they will be one of the leading live music venues in Cardiff."
