HEADLINE SPONSOR: PROOVE is devoted to creating a completely authentic, Neapolitan eating and drinking experience. The team are passionate about sourcing the finest ingredients, wines and products direct from Naples and and the surrounding Campania region– the pizza gastronomic capital of the world. This attention to detail and authenticity is brought together with their own individually designed, contemporary styling to create a beautiful, laid back restaurant and bar.
Just as in Naples, it’s all about the very best food and drink, enjoyed fuss free, in a relaxed setting and at an accessible price. The Proove team believe that even the very best, artisan pizza should be affordable – that it is food designed to be enjoyed by everyone.
Proove recently launched their second Sheffield restaurant at Valley Centertainment and became the first independent brand to open within the entertainment complex. Proove Centertainment also has its own stand-alone bar area where guests can enjoy a cocktail and some delicious street food treats before dining, or just pop in for a drink before their next Centertainment stop.
EVENT SPONSORS: SMOKE BBQ opened its doors in December 2013, but the story started two years earlier with Sean and Duka’s visit to the nirvana of barbecue, Austin Texas.

Many Friends volunteer in the Gardens, working alongside the paid gardeners to help keep the plant collections looking beautiful. Having supported the creation of a new Education Centre in the Gardens in 2017, the group also organises a major programme of horticultural lectures, practical workshops, plant sales, and garden-related tours and trips for its 500 members.
