Music, laughter and jelly babies… The Railtex Awards 2015

Oh What a night!! The Railtex Awards 2015 were without question the best ever!!!!!

We came, we laughed, we danced and ate jelly babies by the train load – literally.  Not only that but some lucky people won some Awards!

The standard of food and entertainment were high. Starting with the marvellously talented Harriet Mcdonnel serenading us as we relaxed with a drink after a hard days exhibiting.



Dinner was amazing and Rod Woodward made us laugh so much, I am sure we burnt off a few of those calories!


The Awards were as close as ever; well done to those winners. Not only did you get a shiny trophy, but you got to meet comedy legend Roy Walker!!
