Dinner at the Roundhouse Thursday October 17 2024 

The Rail Industry's favourite networking evening was another huge success in 2023. What will 2024's dinner bring? 
Mainspring's 'Dinner at the Roundhouse' is a chance for the biggest names in the rail industry to gather together and celebrate the last twelve months, forge new connections and look forward to the future. 
Returning as our keynote speaker in 2023 was Andrew Haines. As both the CEO of Network Rail and the GRTT, he was uniquely placed to provide all the latest updates and crucial information relating to the project and its progress. As well as this, we were honoured to reveal that Councillor Baggy Shanker, the leader of Derby City Council, will also be sharing his views on the positive economic impacts that these changes will have on Derby and the East Midlands itself. 
Celebrating collaboration and innovation, Dinner at the Roundhouse brings together operators, manufacturers, constructors, consultants and partners from across the supply chain with national and local politicians to discuss the opportunities that the future can bring.  
Make sure that, like over 800 Rail Professionals, you ensure your place at the very heart of the action within the very heart of the Railways.

We were delighted that Andrew Haines agreed, once again, to be our headline speaker for the event in 2023 in his role as not only the CEO of Network Rail but also as the CEO of the Great British Railways Transition Team. 
It is not just about the party however - it is also a time for the rail community to show off its generosity. To date, we have raised over a quarter of a million for our chosen charities and, with your help, we hope to raise much much more! Last year, our guests' donations allowed one of our charities, The Royal School of the Deaf Derby, to complete work on their school library. We could not be prouder to help support them and their students through the medium of our events. 
UPDATE: Read all about the effect that the money raised in our 2022 event has had on the school in our latest blog post and support the school through our silent auction which will be held live on the night! 
2023's Dinner at the Roundhouse was not only our biggest event yet but was also a rousing success!  
Read just a sample of the feedback we receieved this year... 
We thoroughly enjoyed another brilliant DATR last night. It is always a fantastic opportunity to connect with clients and meet new names in the UK Rail Sector and this year was no exception.’ 
Another fantastic evening at Dinner at the Roundhouse 2023, great to be able to meet up with industry friends face to face. Thanks to everyone who attended on behalf of Ford & Stanley Group, you made it one to remember. We will be looking forward to many more events throughout the year!
