A number of creative pub conversions have made the final of Cuprinol's 2018 Shed of the Year awards.

The UK public will have until 12noon on Tuesday 28 August to cast their vote​ for both category winners – including a pub and entertainment category – and the overall Shed of the year.

Cuprinol Shed of the Year awards founder Andrew Wilcox said: “We’ve been absolutely blown away by the incredible, imaginative and innovative sheds entered into this year’s competition.

“I’ve judged the finalists 11 years running now and it’s amazing to see how the sheds evolve each year as entrants take inspiration from others and realise that creating your own shed on a budget is a more than achievable project.

“I will be very interested to see who comes out on top following the public vote. It is going to be a near-on impossible task deciding who will take top honour as the Cuprinol Shed of the Year 2018, I love all 24 sheds.”
