London Transport Dinner and Auction

We are delighted to announce that the next annual black-tie London Transport Dinner & Auction event hosted by Transport for London supporting London Transport Museum will be Tuesday, 22 October 2019 at Guildhall, London. Our sell-out event will once again welcome guest speaker Sadiq Kahn, Mayor of London and attract key figures from across the transport industry.

Last year’s dinner was attended by over 450 business and political leaders in support of London Transport Museum, and raised an incredible £317,000 for our ongoing work to inspire children and young people in the story of London, and to tackle the skills gap that persists in transport and infrastructure.
