Granta User Dinner

Roundhouse Derby

DE24 8JE

Drinks Reception: 7PM
Sit-down: 7:30PM

Open to all Granta software users.

This Granta User Dinner will be combined with the EMIT Consortium Dinner on Tuesday evening. It's a great chance for you to network with some of Granta's Global customers, relax and enjoy complimentary drinks and a three-course dinner.

The Roundhouse, Derby is the world's first and oldest surviving railway Roundhouse. It was originally built in 1839 by four rival rail companies, including North Midland Railway (NMR) for whom George Stephenson and his son Robert were engineers.

A number of innovations were incorporated into the new-build construction including chameleon glass, which changes colour depending on the light and angle of view. The 12-metre engine turntable can still be found in The Roundhouse today and is just one example of the rich manufacturing and railway heritage of the site.
