Dudley’s Bar Diva has been awarded the Best LGBTQ Event/Venue Award in the first ever Black Country Music Awards, held at Wolverhampton’s ICB on Friday 21 June.
The venue fought off stiff competition from Walsall’s Lion Bar, Wolverhampton’s Gorgeous, Wolverhampton Pride and Darlaston’s Greenhouse.
The awards aim to shine a light on ‘unrivalled venues, exceptional artists and songwriters, promoters and producers’, as well as identifying the region’s best singles, albums, videos and much more.
Commenting in the win, Bar Diva’s owners said: “Jason and Randle, aka Miss Annie, would like to thank everyone who voted for us in the Black Country Music Awards. All we can say is that we are totally overwhelmed to have won the award such a short time after winning silver in the Midlands Zone Readers’ Awards for ‘best gay bar outside of Birmingham’.”
