Mini and Junior Rugby Festivals 2018

As the dust settles on another successful rugby festival season we take a look at some of our festivals and the dates for 2018.

The Bournemouth Mini and Junior Rugby Festival

Once again this fantastic event was a sell out! With our touring teams filling up Sandford Holiday Park there was a great touring atmosphere all weekend, at both the park and two festival sites. The weather was stunning, with gorgeous sunshine all weekend. The fantastic weather was matched by the rugby on display with some great matches across all of the age groups!

Aylesford Bulls Rugby Club brought six teams (U7s to U12s) and nearly 280 people to this years festival, and it was fantastic to hear they had such a good time:

“On behalf of Aylesford Bulls Rugby Club I want to extend a massive thank you to you all for your assistance in making our tour one of the best we have ever had. It ran without a hitch and everyone has complimented how well organised it was, how great the complex was for all their needs, what fun and how well the festivals went plus you gave us sunshine!!! We all had 2 days of great rugby, filled with lots of fun, trophies, tries and tackles!!  

We will in no doubt not hesitate to consider Burleigh Travel in the future!”

The Bognor Mini and Junior Rugby Festival

This year’s Bognor Festival had a great international feel to it with teams from Ireland and France making the trip to compete. Another wonderfully sunny weekend, we certainly had some red faces in the office on Monday, and many of our touring teams made the most of the sun and spent their free day down on the beach.

Huntingdon Rugby Club took their U14s to this year Bognor Festival, with a match against Portsmouth on the Saturday the boys then came second in the festival on Sunday:

“We had a great tour and everyone really enjoyed it. This was the teams first tour so we were so happy with the outcome. The best part of the tour for me was the amazing bonding that went on between the players! I hadn’t expected this and it really made the tour special.”

The Gent Festival

This event is always hugely popular with colts teams, often on their first big tour abroad, and this year was no different. With a number of UK teams on tour with us this years event offered some fantastic competitive rugby and a great atmosphere with lots of social events and a welcome Belgium beer night.

Llantwit Major RFC U16s attending the Gent Festival this year before the teams disbands at the end of the season. It was therefore lovely to hear they had enjoyed their tour:

“We had a great time! We all really enjoyed the festival and the atmosphere was excellent. I would definitively recommend the event and the tour as a whole.”
