Around 300 guests will attend the black-tie Green Gown awards ceremony at National Railway Museum in York, with the awards honouring exceptional sustainability initiatives by universities and colleges across the UK and Ireland.

Guests will be served drinks on arrival before the awards dinner in the National Railway Museum’s Station Hall, among the platforms and between the museum’s famous royal carriages, such as Queen Victoria’s Carriage.

Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) chief executive Iain Patton said: "Every day, tireless environmental, social and sustainability leaders across the UK and Ireland are driving change and showing the value universities and colleges bring to the economy and society.

"The Green Gown Awards exist to give them the recognition and platform they need to share their learning and do even more. With the National Railway Museum, the Green Gown Awards share a passion for science, innovation, learning to advance society and a better quality of life for us all."

The space will be transformed from a public museum by day to an elegant setting for the award celebrations, framed by the beautiful historical carriages.
