The popular Sutton-in-Ashfield-based music venue The Diamond has been presented with a prestigious award.

The club, based on Stoney Street in Sutton and a regular host to a large selection of bands, week in week out, won the award for Best Entertainment Venue 2016 at the Club Mirror Awards.

The Club Mirror Awards are an annual event that provide a unique showcase for clubland, from sports and social clubs, to working men’s clubs and company clubs.

June and Gary Melvin have been owners of The Diamond for the past 14 years and are thrilled that they have been given such an accolade.

June said: “It’s been a long time coming but all the hard work and effort has been worth it. I must thank all the staff at the Diamond for their continued support and all the bands who have made The Diamond their favourite venue.”

They were presented with the award by Kim Rego Neaves, manager of Women In Rock, who were performing at The Diamond on Saturday night.
