General Rugby Festival Information
Commemorate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and a new Bank Holiday weekend in 2020 by enjoying a rugby tour to Burleigh Travel’s new and exciting mini & junior rugby event. The weekend is designed to give your team a tour to remember and a break from the traditional holiday parks with arcades and limited outdoor facilities that many of you will have tried before. Instead we are offering you a combination of exhilarating team building activities and an action packed day of rugby, at Ashford Rugby Club, competing against both local and touring teams and taking advantage of the RFU extension to the 2020 season for an extra weekend of rugby!
Set in the grounds of a former manor house in Ashford, Kent, you will be staying at Grosvenor Hall; a large outdoor education centre offering you the opportunity to immerse your young rugby players in high adrenaline excitement.
During your tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy a range of challenging activities that take place in a safe and secure environment under the supervision of qualified staff, as well as an indoor heated swimming pool and a 25,000 sq ft sports hall which caters for a wide range of indoor activities; all of which are included for the players in your tour package.
