Rows and rows of sunflowers. Dazzling colours. Warm sunshine. The smell of freshly baked baguettes and the taste of red wine. Then on the horizon bicycles emerge. Now picture this scene in the City of Steel, but this year the home of Le Tour de France!  We will be bringing a taste of Le Tour to Sheffield this summer. Join us at beautiful Whirlowbrook Hall for our Summer Ball. A free drink is included at the drinks reception with your ticket. Please see page four for tickets to this event.
