The highlight of the Annual Meeting - this year our Conference Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony will be held at the National Railway Museum, York.

19.30 : BMUS Pre-Dinner Drinks Reception 

 An opportunity to mingle with other delegates over a glass of wine while stepping back in time, immersing in the fascinating collection spanning a century of railway history. From the global fame of the Flying Scotsman, to the romance of Brief Encounter and the splendour of the Orient Express - trains have transported, inspired and entertained us for hundreds of year.  BMUS are pleased to bring the Annual Dinner to this unique and fascinating venue.

The evening’s festivities will take on a 'Night Train to Vegas' theme and includes a three course deluxe menu, magician, showgirls, Elvis show, Vegas-style Cirque Du Soleil show including acrobatics and stage illusions, fun casino tables, DJ & disco.
