Dinner at the Roundhouse Thursday October 19 2023
The Rail Industry's favourite networking evening was another huge success!
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.
It could not be a more exciting time to be in Derby as it was recently announced as the location for the new Great British Railways HQ. This will bring a plethora of economic and social benefits to the city and the entire East Midlands.
Returning as our keynote speaker in 2023 is Andrew Haines. As both the CEO of Network Rail and the GRTT, he is uniquely placed to provide all the latest updates and crucial information relating to the project and its progress. As well as this, we are 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. So make sure that you are a part of it by ensuring your place at the very heart of the action as Derby takes its place at the very heart of the Railways.

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 2022, 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!
