Please note, due to COVID-19, the 2020 award winners will be presented through a virtual webinar in November 2020.
On the 29th April 2021, YRP will host the 2021 annual dinner in Manchester.
Now in its 12th year, this year's event will be hosted for the first time by YRP's North West region at the stunning Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester.
Manchester has a wealth of railway history and heritage, making it an ideal location for the dinner. As important as the history of rail in this region is its future. In the coming years, the North of England will see significant investment in the rail sector, some future programmes could make up the biggest transport interventions in the region since the industrial revolution.
By hosting the Annual Dinner in Manchester, YRP will play its part in showcasing the wealth of upcoming opportunities within the North West and wider region, where it hopes to attract a large number of skilled young people in order to deliver major upgrades to the rail network in the North of England.
