Summer Sporting Spectaculars

Sport. We English love it. It’s an essential thread of our fabric; a core of our very being. Especially when we’re winning! Summertime brings a packed programme of UK sporting events, where we can join in the excitement and cheer on the home side. We love to line the route as a race flashes past, trainers pumping, pedals flying. The crowd hold their breath, sharing the tension and willing a victory at an international match. Or we pack a picnic and look out for royalty as we spectate in style at a variety of society sporting events. It’s what English summers were made for. (PS: Don’t forget the bubbly...).
