As an official supporter of the Grand Départ 2014, we held a series of events and activities to give our students and staff, as well as people from across the region, a chance to get involved.

You can still take part in the events below, or take a look at the menu on the left to see what else has been happening.

Visit the Sheffield Institute of Arts exhibition

As part of the Grand Départ Cultural Festival Fringe, the Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery is holding an exhibition featuring artefacts inspired by the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire.

The work was created by students from our creative arts courses, including interior design, graphic design, and jewellery and metalwork.

The exhibition runs from 5 July to 3 August, open daily 10am-5pm, and until 8pm on Wednesdays.
