Our awards dinner /webinar that celebrates
the outstanding achievements from right across the UK’s rail freight sector.
7pm, Thursday 10 September 2020.
The Rail Freight Group is delighted to announce an exciting new addition to its annual events calendar – the industry’s first-ever online awards dinner.
With the ongoing restrictions placed on events due to Covid-19, RFG was faced with cancelling our popular Awards Dinner evening and disappointing our members. Never to easily admit defeat, the team has joined forces with Burges Salmon and GBRf to co-host what promises to be an exciting night of entertainment and recognition of this dynamic and deserving sector.
We have always prided ourselves on the informal nature of the RFG Awards – and this time we have taken it a step further by inviting you to attend the ceremony from the comfort of your own sofa. Entry is free and you can individually select your own favourite (microwave) dinner! Black tie optional. Alongside our usual award categories, we will have entertainment and some surprise guests on the night.
RFG has once again chosen Railway Benefit Fund as the charity we are supporting at the RFG Awards. On the night we will be running a charity raffle. There are lots of great prizes and you can buy tickets now. Click here to purchase tickets.
This year, we are also delighted to welcome award-winning magician Nick Einhorn, and his new Virtual Astonishment show.
Winner of ITV1’s Fool Us, Nick is a close-up magic legend and an old friend of the RFG. If you didn’t catch his act on TV (or in Las Vegas), members will immediately recognise him from our Christmas Lunches, where Nick has been wowing guests with his amazing (and completely baffling) close-up magic. He has developed an exciting online magic and mind-reading show, which he will be performing live for us during a 30-minute interval.
We have been very impressed by the standard of entries this year, making the judging a very difficult process. As usual, you will find out the winners and runners-up from our regular hosting duo: Simon Coppen (Burgess Salmon) and John Smith (GB Railfreight). We are very grateful to both companies for their longstanding support for these awards.

Even though we cannot be together in person, we are looking forward to this virtual celebration of the individuals and businesses that have driven rail freight success in 2019-2020.
