The people have voted – and given Sheringham Little Theatre a prestigious arts award.

The venue is celebrating being named best small organisation in the EDP People's Choice section of The Norfolk Arts Awards.

Delighted director Debbie Thompson collected the accolade at a ceremony in Norwich Cathedral's Hostry on Friday night.

She said: 'This is amazing for us. Because it was a public vote it means a lot.'

The theatre's work staging a professional panto, one of the few remaining summer repertory drama seasons, films, live arts events, a range of community, amateur and youth productions and its busy Hub coffee bar were all praised.
